Camp Safe Haven is free and open to children and youth, ages 5-18, who have experienced the loss of a loved one, regardless of how that loss occurred. Attendance at camp will give participants the tools they need to acknowledge that a change in their life has occurred and to accept that change through a three-step approach:
» Encourage participants to acknowledge their feelings, thoughts and behaviors related to loss.
» Empower participants to learn how to manage their grief reactions.
» Enlighten participants with the understanding that grieving is a natural process, it’s okay to feel sad, and it’s okay to express their feelings and learn that others experience grief too.
