MISSION AND VISION
Experience Camps transforms the lives of grieving children
through free, one-week overnight camps built on
camaraderie, compassion, and connection.
WHAT WE DO
We help kids feel less alone. We make them feel understood. We convince them
that there is hope. We help them laugh and breathe fresh air. We take away
their cell phones, break down boundaries, and get them to talk to each other.
We combine the best elements of summer camp with a clinically-informed peer
support model that normalizes their grief and allows kids to connect with other
kids who "get it", creating a sense of community that lasts long after the last bus
Despite significant growth over the last 11 years, our wait list is growing at an
exceedingly faster rate. We must grow faster to serve the kids that need us.
Nobody wants to tell a grieving child that he or she can not come to camp.
