Event Type

A day for children ages 6 to 12 who have experienced the death of a loved one

Staab’s Kids Good Grief Camp will be on April 14 from 12 to 4 p.m.

Grieving children often feel isolated because they rarely know anyone their age who has experienced the death of a friend or family member. Support can be beneficial whether it has been just weeks, several months or even years since the death of a loved one.

Kids Good Grief is an afternoon of both support and fun providing children an opportunity to:

  • Share their experiences with other children and lessen their sense of isolation
  • Help each other in their healing journeys
  • Learn valuable tools to help them grieve in a healthy way
  • Make new friends
  • Participate in a wide range of activities.

The experience is designed for children ages 6 to 12 who have experienced the loss of a loved one.

A brief parent presentation will take place at the end of camp. Parents should arrive by 3:10 p.m. to participate.

There is a $10 registration fee. Scholarships are available.

See the Kids Good Grief flyer and registration form.

The last day to register is April 1. Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Late registration may be possible if space is available.
