Death is hard to deal with. It can be even harder for the young ones around us who do not yet understand all of life’s ups and downs.

Why did this person die? Why does it hurt so much? Could I have done something to help them? Is it ok to cry? Will I ever stop hurting? These are some questions that kids may ask themselves when dealing with the loss of a loved one. Fortunately, Methodist Hospice provides children and their families with grief guidance through the annual Camp BraveHearts Family Grief Camp in Memphis, Tenn. The camp, held at St. Columba Episcopal Center, is a safe place where feelings of grief can be expressed without having to worry about the reactions of others. Trained professionals and volunteers help kids and their families explore issues related to grief, walking beside them as they take the steps needed to heal. By sharing their grief with others, kids and adults begin to let go.

Who is Camp BraveHearts for?
Children ages 6-16 who have experienced the death of a family member or friend within the past two years. A complete program is also available for parents and caregivers of the children attending camp. This family grief camp is open to the community and free of charge for campers.

What will my child do at Camp BraveHearts?
At the family grief camp, your child will work through grief by participating in arts and crafts, creative learning, games, counseling and building friendships.

  • Laugh
  • Cry
  • Talk
  • Remember
  • Make friends
  • Learn to let it go

When is the camp?
June 10th-12th (Thursday & Friday 8:30 am - 4:00 pm and Saturday 8:30 - 12:30)

How do I sign my child up?
Please call 901.516.1744 and ask to speak with a family grief camp intake person.
