Comfort Zone Camp is honored to partner with Samaritans and the Department of Public Health (Suicide Prevention) to provide this camp for children and teens who have experienced the loss of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver to suicide. This camp is limited to children living in Massachusetts, due to the funding requirements. This one day program is a strength-based, child-focused model, which includes age-based support groups facilitated by trained grief specialists. The program will facilitate icebreakers, confidence-building activities and other activities designed to facilitate trust, expression, and interaction among them.
To be eligible for this camp, the child must be between the ages of 7-17(18 if still in high school), and experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver.
Grief evolves with each developmental stage a child reaches, so learning to manage grief in a healthy way is important at every age. Whether the child’s loss was ten years or three months ago, encourage them to attend - you may have an opportunity to change the course of their life.
