Camp Comfort is a weekend camp offered twice each summer that addresses the special needs of grieving children ages 6 to 12. Camp Comfort offers children a supportive environment where they can gain an understanding of grief and loss. Children learn ways to cope with their grief through workshops and activities, building skills that will help them now and throughout their lives. Grief workshops are balanced with recreational activities like swimming, boating, and fishing so children feel free to have fun and just be kids. All activities are supervised by trained social workers, staff, and volunteers. Camp Comfort is held near Georgetown, Colorado, 35 miles west of Denver off of I-70. The cost, $150 per child, includes all meals, snacks, overnight accommodations, recreation, and workshops. Some scholarships are available for those unable to pay all or part of the registration fee.
