LEARN TO BE BRAVER AND STRONGER THAN YOU BELIEVED POSSIBLE!

  12th Annual Camp Hope

An overnight camp to help children and teens heal after experiencing the death of a loved one. 

Ages 6-17

Camp Hope will take place Sept. 8 and 9 at the Northern Virginia 4-H Education and Conference Center at 600 4-H Center Drive, Front Royal.

Children and teens feel grief as a normal and natural response to loss.  Unaddressed grief can cause them to feel isolated or alone.  Often they just need understanding, support, and opportunities to express their thoughts and feelings.  

Camp Hope is designed to meet kids where they are and to help them recognize and build on their inner strengths.  Through fun activities that help strengthen character and increase self-confidence, Camp Hope provides opportunities for kids to connect with others facing similar circumstances, and learn they are not alone. 

Grief counselors, trained staff, and volunteers will guide your child on their grief journey.  All participants will be paired with an adult “buddy” who will provide a caring presence, assist with supervision, and help your child work through any feelings that might surface. 

“All Camp Hope activities provide kids with a safe space to explore grief and embrace healing, while having fun 

Therapeutic Activities May Include

Low Ropes Course (for specific ages)

Music Therapy and Therapeutic Art Activities

Games . 

Although timid at first, my daughter left so happy and proud! It was a wonderful experience for her and definitely impacted her emotional well-being.  I can’t thank everyone at Blue Ridge Hospice enough!” ~ Camp Hope parent
