Camp Treehouse is a free day-camp for children and teens, ages 6 to 18, that have lost a loved one. The camp provides a caring, safe environment where youth can explore their feelings and concerns. Individual camps will be held in Roanoke on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Specific locations will be confirmed during required registration:

  • April 22:  Soulful Rhythms and Rhymes. Through spoken word and music, campers ages 13-18 will reflect on one’s life journey and people that have added meaning along the way. Open to all levels of writing and rhythm.
  • June 17:  Dance of the Soul. Campers will learn how movement and rhythm encourage healing and positive energy. No dance experience required. 

As part of Carilion’s Center for Grief and Healing, camps are guided by licensed counselors and local artists. To register, download the application here or call Paula Wolfteich, Ph.D., director, at 540-853-0007 for more information.
