Soaring Spirits’ Camp Widow® Kids program creates the same peer atmosphere for children ages 5-17 that we provide for their parents who attend Camp Widow®. Our kids program is focused on the power of narrative and the building of community. Over two days, we will be assisting young people who have experienced the death of a parent to tell the story of their grief experience in their own words. Throughout the weekend they will ‘build’ their storytelling skills and create their own unique narrative that acknowledges the death of their parent, and also honors the love they will always have for their parent.
Each camp weekend has a unique theme which is woven through fun outings, team building games and experiences, time to honor their loved one, and most importantly the experience of being in a community of peers, to create a memorable and meaningful weekend.
We love the opportunity to create a community of peers for the kids of our campers, and to offer them the ongoing opportunity to attend the Camp Widow® Kids program year after year. Community matters!
Children who attend MUST be accompanied by a parent who is attending Camp Widow®, but there is no additional fee for any child attending the Camp Widow® Kids program.
