After not finding a way to hold camp in person, WV Caring decided to bring its free bereavement camp to children in the safety of their own home. Applications are being accepted for children and adults who would like to participate in this year’s camp.
Since 1996, West Virginia Caring has held a grief and loss camp to support children in West Virginia who have lost a loved one. Camp provides an experience for those children who have experienced the death of a loved one. This camp is free of charge and is open to any child age 6 – 14. The goal is they can live life in a changed world with a new relationship to their loved one who has died.
Camp Caring focuses on the unique grief process of children. Utilizing fun activities, art therapy, and materials, the camp empowers each child to be able to express their grief and successfully cope with the feelings of their loss.
