Bereavement summer camp for children ages 6-12 that have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver.

Camp Red Bird is a bereavement summer camp for children ages 6-12 that have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver.  In response to COVID-19 Camp Red Bird has shifted to an online camp.

 

Camp Red Bird engages children in activities that incorporate art, crafts, nature-based experiences, yoga, and movement to help process feelings of grief.  Children who participate in camp learn to develop healthy coping skills in a safe and supportive environment.  Camp Red Bird will be led by a licensed therapist as well as camp counselors.  The curriculum is overseen by a team of grief and loss professionals.  

 

Camp Red Bird creates a safe environment where kids can laugh, cry, play, create, remember the person who died, learn that it is okay to grieve, and to understand that they are not alone.  It is a space where they can feel ‘normal’, because everyone there has been through something similar and understands what it’s like to lose someone important to them. Children who attend camp learn to develop healthy coping skills in a safe and supportive environment.    

 

Camp Red Bird is offering two sessions online:

Session 1 June 21st - 25th from 9:30 - 11:30 AM

Session 2 August 2nd - 6th from 9:30 - 11:30 AM
