Free Bereavement Camps for Children and Teenagers

Camp Comfort is a non-profit bereavement camp for children throughout the country who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver. The children participate in a combination of recreation and therapeutic group activities specific to their age level and are given an opportunity to remember their loved ones in a safe and healing environment. There is no cost to attend the camp, and scholarships to cover the cost of transportation may be available for out of state campers. Additionally, a program through the Target Stores, called Target Angels, will work with financially challenged families in need of obtaining necessary camp supplies.
