Camp I Believe is a FREE children’s bereavement camp funded by Kindred Hospice Foundation that provides support to grieving children and families across the country, with an emphasis being placed on strong clinical programming and community engagement. Camp activities and programming focus on providing campers with opportunity to express feelings and tell their story in a safe environment.
Although all of the campers have been identified as grieving, not all of the programming is focused on grief and loss. Many of the children who come to camp attend for the opportunity to have fun and to feel “normal” again. All activities, whether directly or indirectly, help campers to establish a sense of community and provide team building opportunities; activities place an emphasis on personal growth through creative expression and through establishing positive relationships with peers.
Applications can be obtained by calling or e-mailing the Sarah Cardet
The mission of the Kindred Hospice Foundation is to support and educate people dealing with life-limiting illnesses. It is because of generous donations to the Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, that Camp I Believe programs across the nation are offered at no cost to children who are grieving their loss.
