Grief Camps & Programs for Children and Teens

Cornerstone of Hope offers workshops and summer bereavement camps for children and teens experiencing loss in Columbus, OH.

Cornerstone of Hope offers workshops and summer bereavement camps for grieving children and teens. Our programs, workshops and grief camps offer children an opportunity to learn about grief and engage with peers who have similar experiences. Campers will participate in age-appropriate grief activities led by professionals, go on field trips, play fun high-energy games and experience challenging activities.

We are so excited to be offering Camp Memory this summer! At Cornerstone of Hope it is our top priority to provide a safe and enriching day camp for your children. With the ongoing concerns of COVID-19, it is important that we share with you the safety precautions we will be taking during camp. Our well-trained staff and volunteers will help keep your campers safe with the following measures: curbside pick-up and drop off, smaller group sizes, scheduled hand-washing breaks, regularly sanitizing spaces and supplies, and providing individually packaged meals and snacks. Please rest assured that, though camp may look a little different this year, the heart of this amazing experience will not change. Our campers will have the opportunity to explore their thoughts and feelings and share their loss experience with their peers in a supportive environment, with lots of time for fun and making friends along the way!
