More About Camp
Registration is underway for both the June and July sessions of Mt. Evans Hospice’s annual Camp Comfort, located in the Rocky Mountains just west of Denver. This unique bereavement camp is a way for children ages 6 to 12 to explore their feelings of grief and share memories of their loved ones. Over a thousand children have attended Camp Comfort since its establishment in 1995.
During this extraordinary weekend, children learn ways to cope with their grief through workshops led by licensed social workers and trained bereavement professionals. A volunteer “buddy” system (with no more than two children to one adult) ensures that children receive plenty of personal, one-on-one attention. And, while children are encouraged to share memories and express their grief, Camp Comfort offers fun, too. The daily itinerary includes plenty of opportunities for recreation including swimming, horseback riding, arts and crafts, fishing, and hiking.
The total cost to attend Camp Comfort, including all workshops, recreation, meals, snacks, and overnight accommodations, is $150. Scholarships are available based on financial need. For more information or to receive a brochure, email us below or call Mt. Evans Hospice at 303-674-6400.
