Preparation for CampCare 2014 is well underway and we are excited to be offering three programs this year!
This is the 14th year for CampCare, our annual grief support program that helps children and teens cope with the death of a loved one while having summer fun. Entirely supported by charitable donations, the program helps campers deal with their loss while they enjoy art, theater, music and sports activities and fun with friends.
Adventure Camp is held on the beautiful waters of the Wisconsin River. Campers will participate in daily canoeing and camping
activities during their four-day stay and explore ways to support each other along the way. Adventure Camp runs June 22-25 and is open to students entering
their sophomore through senior year in high school.
Overnight Camp, available to children entering fourth grade through freshman year in high school, will be held at Holiday Home Camp in Williams Bay, Wisconsin. Camp runs
August 14-17. This camp provides campers the opportunity to engage in fun camp activities and participate in daily, small group discussions designed to listen
to campers' concerns and offer support.
Summerfest 2014 is new this year! It will be a day of activities for children, teens and adults from the community who have lost a loved one. Summerfest includes creative activities, small group discussion, lunch and a meditation walk, on Saturday, June 7.
These camp programs are offered free of charge to eligible campers.
