Summer Camps

Cornerstone of Hope offers workshops and summer bereavement camps for grieving children and teens, as well as additional topic-specific summer enrichment camps. 

Our grief programs, workshops and 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 sports and games, and experience arts and crafts and other activities.

In Lima, our summer enrichment camps provide children and teens an opportunity to learn age-specific coping skills in a variety of areas such as anxiety, self-esteem, and more.
