West Virginia Caring will be hosting its 23rd annual bereavement camp for kids, Camp Caring

West Virginia Caring will be hosting its 23rd annual bereavement camp for kids, Camp Caring, on August 3rd, 2019 at Camp Mountaineer in Monongalia County, WV.


Camp Caring is held to support adolescents, ages 6-14, in WV that have experienced the death of a love one.  Focusing on large and small group activities, the Camp empowers each adolescent with the ability to express their grief and successfully cope with their feeling of loss and trauma. Camp Caring runs optional  concurrent sessions for the adults(s) in the child’s life. The purpose is that each family member is individual strengthened and supported so that the entire family can move forward together to a place of a new normal. 


Camp Caring is a free all day event!


Please help us in spreading the word on camp and extending the information out to those who may benefit.
