Since 2001, the Children’s Grief Center of New Mexico has been providing free support groups for young people ages 5-25 who’ve had a loved one die. This summer, the Grief Center will offer a free 3-day, 2-night camp, called Camp Corazon, for kids ages 7-senior in high school who are grieving the death of someone important to them.
Camp Corazon will offer traditional camp activities such as a challenge course, bonfire, songs and games, but most importantly, a unique opportunity for kids who have lost a loved one to share experiences and memories related to the death of their loved one. Camp Corazon provides grieving children with age-appropriate coping skills that will help them manage grief in their day-to-day lives, even after they leave. Camp Corazon is a unique, free camp experience for grieving children from across the state.
Information and camp applications for both campers and volunteers are available on our website – www.childrensgrief.org. Grief Center staff members are available to make presentations or answer questions; please contact the Grief Center in Albuquerque at 505-323-0478.
