About Camp HEARTplay

Camp HEARTplay is our newest HEARTplay program. These “mini-camp” sessions are offered a few times a year during school breaks and are open to both current and new participants. Facilitated by experienced HEARTplay team members and trained, caring volunteers, Camp HEARTplay combines the therapeutic benefit of bereavement groups with the fun of a camp experience. Participants are invited to connect with peers who have also experienced a loss; honor their person; learn about the grieving process; and participate in fun activities in a safe and supportive environment. Dates, times, locations and age range will vary by individual Camp HEARTplay program. As with all HEARTplay programs, Camp HEARTplay is offered at no cost to all participants.
