Experiencing the loss of a loved one is one of the most challenging of all human experiences. Grieving your loss is an important life passage and a natural part of the healing process. It can help you recover and offer a path to new beginnings.
Grieving the loss of a loved one is a uniquely personal experience that forever changes us. When a loss is sudden and accidental, the experience can be deeply traumatic, making grief seem an unbearable burden.
Grief is a person’s natural response to an important loss. Grief results in many different emotions. Over time, normal grieving can help you accept and heal from your loss, and move forward positively with your life.
From the moment someone we love becomes seriously ill or passes away, our life is never the same. Yet it can be happy, healthy and fulfilling again. Enjoying or exploring new activities after a loss is important.

Grief can be an isolating experience, especially to children who have lost a loved one. We’d like to share the story of a camp that gives grieving children a place to bond with other kids who understand what they are going through.
