About Camp


Grief Expressions Summer Camp is a full immersion experience that brings together kids who have experienced the death of someone important in their life. By bringing together children and teens with similar experiences, camp creates a community of kids who understand and support one another.

Camp provides kids with the unique opportunity to tap into their creativity and imagination in a safe environment that encourages true self-expression. Throughout the week, campers will explore a variety of arts while developing skills, inspiring confidence, and having fun!

Parents and family members are invited to join us on the final afternoon of camp for a performance and arts show. Campers will exhibit all they have learned and created throughout the week as we celebrate the end of camp.

Camp is open to children in 1st through 8th grade, with no previous art experience necessary. Throughout the camp, children will be grouped by age as they attend the various workshops. All art supplies, camp T-shirt, bag, and water bottle are included. A morning and afternoon snack is provided and campers must bring their own lunch.

Develop theatre skills
Imaginative writing and photography exercises
Arts-based field trips
Performances by local professionals
