Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp will be held:
November 3-5, 2017 in Hudson, WI
April 6-8, 2018 in Mcgregor, mn
When a loved one dies, the whole family is affected. Each family member grieves differently. The whole family needs help.
Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camps help families come together to heal. At this weekend-long camp, every member of the family has the opportunity to participate in integrated yet separate programs. Activities are mirrored in each program, providing shared experiences and a common language to use as they continue on their lifelong grief journey after the camp ends. Hearts of Hope Camp serves family members from pre-school through grandparenthood. On-site daycare for birth to age three is provided. Camp staff are comprised of volunteers that have submitted to multiple background checks.
Individually and collectively, family members experience hope and healing by joining together with fellow travelers on the grief journey.
Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp is available free of charge thanks to the generosity of our supporters. A $150 refundable family deposit is required at registration.

We are piloting a program specific to the Emerging Adult population (18 to 24 year olds). The EA program is designed to meet the developmental needs of this age group. Emerging adults can now attend our family grief camp in their own age appropriate program or attend as individuals. If attending with family members they can be included in the family registration. If attending individually, click here to register.

“When death comes, despair is diminished by the strength and togetherness of Family. Death must not be met alone…From the shock and inner-paralysis of the death of one beloved, reality and resolve become the wellsprings of acceptance, healing, and hope…”-Jerry Brown
