Grief, Camp, & Remembrance

“These were..people that shaped me, pushed me, and cared for me, as well as countless others. … In between..tears and laughter..shared. Grief was embraced and gaping wounds..given aid.”

“Grief, sadness, and heartache—things not often associated with camp—are nonetheless present in the lives of campers, retreat guests, volunteers, and staff. We can’t expect our campers to explore, grow, rest, and play without first reflecting on the weight they may carry to camp.”

—Mike Davis, acting executive director

“….grief is a healthy part of life and not something to be ignored.”
—Molly DeWitt, program director
