    Camp Carousel 
     

    For rising 1st- 12th graders who are grieving the death of a loved one. Families of campers are encouraged to join us for a Closing Ceremony at 3:00 pm. We believe that grief affects the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. We offer a framework for support, expression, and coping skills through small-group sharing, creative arts therapy, and animal-assisted therapy. We know that fun, meaningful activities - as well as the chance to tell our stories - foster connection and deepen the healing process. Camp Carousel is open to the community.
