Camp Bridges says "Thank You"

CAMP BRIDGES SAYS “THANK YOU”

 

 

 

Camp Bridges is a camp that is held for one weekend at the beginning of summer for bereaved teens and children aged 7 – 17.  Camp is open to anyone who has had someone close to them pass away.  The goal is to have the camp at no cost to the camper.

 

Camp Bridges helps to address the gap in bereavement services by building a community of caring.

 

Camp Bridges is facilitated by dedicated trained volunteers who create a warm, fun filled, caring atmosphere where campers are able to enjoy the outdoors and grow in understanding of their grief.

 

Campers Learn:

 

·      They are not alone in their grief.

 

·         They are free to share thoughts and feelings with peers who have also experienced a death of someone they loved.

 

Camp Bridges honours the memories of those who have died with many activities as well as incorporating regular camp activities such as archery, camp fire, horseback riding.
