grief and loss camp for kids

You are invited to Camp Kaniksu: a 3-day, 2-night event at Camp Lutherhaven. Camp Kaniksu provides a safe and supportive environment where campers are surrounded by others who share a similar experience. Typical camp activities paired with grief support help campers address their feelings. At Camp Kaniksu, kids learn that having fun is a part of healing.

ADDRESSING THE NEED

  • 4,000 youth are in grief in our community.
  • 1 in 5 youth will experience the death of a parent, sibling, or grandparent before the age of 18.
  • This does not include the amount of youth who will lose an aunt or uncle, a friend, a teacher, and other important figures in their life.

OPEN TO ALL YOUTH IN GRIEF

Our program supports grieving children throughout the community. This camp is free of charge to families thanks to generous donations. Registration for Summer, 2021 is currently open, but limited to 45 youth to accommodate the ability to socially distance.
