Come hear more about this procedure and see if it can help you or someone you love!

Camp Treehouse East is a day camping experience for families with children ages 5-17 who have lost a loved one. The camp provides a caring, safe environment where children are free to explore their feelings and concerns.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend. Adult campers will also participate in group sessions designed to better understand a child’s grieving process and how they can best support their child’s needs.

Camp Treehouse is an opportunity for kids to meet others their own age who know what it’s like to lose a loved one. Campers will share memories and participate in many activities such as arts, crafts, music, games, and outdoor activities. No charge for attendance.
