Camp Caring In-A-Box

March 26 - May 31

Camp Caring

Unable to find a way to hold camp in person, WV Caring decided to bring its free bereavement camp to children in the safety of their own homes. Applications are now accepted for children 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. This camp is free of charge and is open to any child ages 6 – 14. Camp Caring’s goal is to teach children that they can live life in a changed world with a new relationship with their loved one who has died.

Camp Caring focuses on the unique grief process of children. By utilizing fun activities, art therapy, and materials, the camp empowers each child to express their grief and successfully cope with the feelings of their loss.

Applications Due by May 31, 2021
