Camp Courage

 

Camp Courage is JourneyCare’s bereavement camp with activities for children and teens, ages 6-13, who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Camp Courage provides a safe, supportive and fun environment for campers to explore and express their feelings. Activities are led by professionally trained counselors and trained JourneyCare volunteers. There is no cost to attend Camp Courage, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, community partners and families.

Congratulations to all of the children who completed JourneyCare’s Camp Courage this summer! Over 40 campers attended Camp Courage in July.

This week-long adventure included kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing and swimming. Campers also participated in activities to help address grief through identifying and expressing emotions, learning coping skills and sharing memories of their loved ones in a safe and supportive environment.

Special thanks to our generous sponsors, volunteers and staff at YMCA Camp Duncan for making this week so amazing for our campers!

Here’s a recap of our weeklong adventure!
