Bereaved Family Camp

May 5 to 7, 2017, Camp Kindle

You are invited to join us at Camp Kindle for our Bereaved Family Camp.

The purpose of this special family camp is to give families who have lost a child to cancer the chance to:

  • Relax – get away from regular life and relax in the beautiful Camp Kindle setting;
  • Play – enjoy all the activities and opportunities for recreation at Camp Kindle, including our high ropes course, hiking trails, campfires, games, skits and songs;
  • Connect – with other families who have experienced a loss, who may better understand your journey than others.

You will have the chance to enjoy camp as a family unit, but also have some free time as adults while our capable staff and volunteers engage the kids in exciting activities around camp.

We look forward to a wonderful weekend with your family!

Family Camp

June 2 to June 4, 2017 & September 29 to October 1, 2017, Camp Kindle

Our June camp will be celebrating National Cancer Survivors Day.

Each spring and fall, our Family Camps give kids a chance to get outdoors, get silly and have fun, while parents find quiet time to relax and connect with other parents. Gather around the campfire. Experience the thrill of the giant swing. Enjoy delicious food, crafts, hikes and lots of laughter.

Join us at Camp Kindle for a relaxing weekend with your family. Camp is a great opportunity for young people to come together and enjoy the simple pleasures of childhood, while parents find quiet time to relax and connect with other parents.

“Play, while it cannot change the external realities of children’s lives, can be a vehicle for children to explore and enjoy their differences and similarities and to create, even for a brief time, a more just world where everyone is an equal and valued participant.” ~ Patricia G.
