Comfort Zone provides grieving children with a voice, a place and a community in which to heal, grow and lead more fulfilling lives.
Comfort Zone envisions a world where grieving children are not forgotten or left to grieve alone, and are supported by a wide community that understands and appreciates them.
About Comfort Zone Camp
Comfort Zone Camp is the nation’s largest bereavement camp. Comfort Zone Camps are offered free of charge to children ages 7-17 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. The camps are held year-round in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Virginia. Comfort Zone plans to expand to Texas in 2011.
Comfort Zone Camps create an environment where grieving children can have fun and break the isolation death often brings, while learning valuable coping skills for their daily lives.
Read about how camp helps.
Comfort Zone Camp has hosted campers from 44 States, Canada and the United Kingdom. Our goal is to reach families in all 50 states. We believe in removing all barriers to camp, and assist with travel when necessary
Comfort Zone developed HelloGrief.org to start a discussion about the impact of loss and build a community of support for those living with loss. Hello Grief offers an online community where you can share and remember loved ones by creating interactive memorial walls, writing blog posts, and connecting in the forums. Hello Grief also posts weekly stories from people living with loss, and coping strategies provided by grief experts.
Comfort Zone Support Groups
Comfort Zone also hosts support groups for adults and children throughout the year, providing a network of support for the whole family.
