Comfort Zone Camp is the nation’s largest bereavement camp headquartered in Richmond, VA. Since 1999, we have helped over 20,000 all at no cost. I am reaching out to you today, to let you know that we are a free and effective resource for grieving children ages 7-18 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver.
Our camps take place on weekends throughout the year. At camp we do a mix of traditional camp activities (games, arts & crafts, s’mores) and also weave in support groups that we call, healing circles. All kids are paired 1:1 with their own big buddy, who serves as their anchor, mentor and friend. At camp, we see kids break their isolation, get back to being a kid again and gain tools to help them in their everyday grief journey. They are also able to attend annually. Therapists who volunteer at our program say that a weekend at camp is worth six months or more of therapy! Please see the attached flyer for more information.
Comfort Zone will have three Virginia camps in 2020 on the following weekends: May 15 – 17, August 14 – 16, and November 6 – 8.
I am writing to ask for your help to:
-refer grieving kids to our program
-use CZC as a resource as needed when you have questions on supporting grieving children.
