BEREAVEMENT CAMP FOR CHILDREN
Friday, August 4, 2017
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
North Chagrin Reservation, River Grove Picnic Area
Camp Bridges is a day-long bereavement camp for children who have lost a parent or other loved one to homicide, suicide, or another traumatic event. Such unexpected loss can make a child feel all alone and “different” from other children. Camp Bridges brings together fifty children who have had similar experiences for a fun and healing day.
Volunteer at Camp Bridges. You will have a deep and meaningful experience and make a powerful and lasting impact on the lives of these children. You will be matched as a Volunteer Buddy to a child, to support them as they memorialize their lost loved one during therapeutic crafts and participate with them in group games and activities. Volunteer orientation includes a review of the impact of trauma on children, developmental responses and strategies for volunteers to support the campers. Background checks are required to volunteer.
