Description

Free Weekend Grief Camp for Kids

Comfort Zone Camp is a nonprofit organization that transforms the lives of children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, primary caregiver, or significant person. Our programs are free of charge and include trust-building activities and age-based support groups that break the emotional isolation grief often brings. Comfort Zone’s programs are offered to children ages 7-17, and their families for the family programs, plus we offer young adult programs for 18-25-year-olds.  

We need volunteers ages 18+ to be paired with a child ranging in ages 7-17. The volunteer would be what we call a "Big Buddy" and be a mentor to the child for the weekend. There are other volunteer opportunities available for those who want to serve in a different capacity. Those can be found here. Volunteers would need to attend a 4-hour training and pass a background check. Start by completing an application using the link here.
