“Camp Corazón – A special place for kids ages 7 – Senior in High School who’ve had a loved one die.
At the Children’s Grief Center of New Mexico, we often get calls from families living around the state who have lost loved ones, and don’t have any resources in their communities. This is why we’re reaching out across New Mexico.
Camp Corazón offers traditional camp activities such as a challenge course, bonfire, songs and games, and it also provides a unique opportunity for kids who have lost a loved one to share feelings and memories with other kids who’ve been through something similar. Camp Corazón helps grieving young people develop their own coping skills that will help them manage grief in their day-to-day lives, even after they leave.
At the Children’s Grief Center, we’ve been working with bereaved kids and their families for a long time – and we know we need your help! Let’s spread the word about this unique opportunity for grieving kids. Please help us reach bereaved families in your community. We also need volunteers to help at camp – as Big Buddies (playing and camping side by side with each kid), Activity Leaders and in special support roles (bereavement facilitators, help with meals, arts and crafts, driving).”
“The Children’s Grief Center provides free services to hundreds of kids in our community each year – all without any state or federal funding.” We appreciate any support!
