Camp Lifetimes 2023: Grief sharing and education camp

Camp Lifetimes is focused on peer support, fun, and grief work for bereaved children in Southwest Michigan and Northern Indiana.

Any child who has experienced the death of someone significant in their life is invited to attend camp, even if they have not used our services before. It is our hope that each child will leave camp with new friends who understand and know their story, along with the encouragement to continue to work through their grief.

Thanks to the generous support of individuals and our community, registration to Camp Lifetimes continues to be offered to all participants without cost. If you know someone who might benefit from our camp experience, please encourage them to attend.

2023 Camp Lifetimes is FULL as of 5.11.2023. If you would like to add your child(ren) to the waiting list, please complete the registration form. We will contact you if any openings become available.

The goal for Camp Lifetimes 2023 is to identify coping skills and self-care practices to grieve and mourn in a healthy way. Opportunities to observe how other living creatures protect and care for themselves during a scavenger hunt at Sarett Nature Center will be a highlight of the one-day camp. While at Lory’s Place, campers will learn fun ways to prepare and fuel their bodies. Lunch and snacks will be provided during the day. Camp will start and end at Lory’s Place.

Come ready to grow, learn, and have fun with friends!
