Grief Support with Bereavement Coordinator, Kaylee Kron

Death of a loved one can be life changing. Feelings of grief may come and go; and every loss feels different. Grief is unique and can be felt at any age. It is our mission to support those who have been touched by loss; to walk alongside families and friends of any age, supporting their journey through grief. Deep listening, tools to express grief, and understanding grief are included in the journey together.

Children ages 6-16 who have experienced a loss through death are welcomed at Camp Kaniksu.

Spring Memorial

As spring approaches, we are reminded that even after the dreariest of winters, there is always hope for a sunny day. In the spirit of hope and the comfort of remembrance, we encourage all members of our community to reflect on the memories of the loved ones we have lost over the past year as we share treasured memories, words of encouragement, music, and light refreshments.

Counseling can be provided to individuals of all ages, families, and friends who feel lost in their grief.
