Camp Courage


Camp Courage is JourneyCare’s bereavement camp and 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 in Summer 2018!

Our bereavement camp serves children ages 6-13 from throughout our 10-county service area who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Trained JourneyCare staff and volunteers led campers through a variety of activities during the five-day camp, including nature hikes, climbing walls, ropes challenges, swimming and more. Campers also participated in activities to help them address and share their grief in a safe and supportive environment, including creating “grief gadgets” and superhero capes. View photos here.

Thank you to all who were part of this amazing experience!
