Resources: Camp Courage

Mourning the death of someone is a very difficult process, especially for a child and teens.

Through the use of tailored activities and trained counselors, Camp Courage provides a safe environment for children and teens to express their thoughts and feelings and recognize that they are not alone in their grief.

In light of the recent and predicted coronavirus precautions, Harbor Hospice leaders have made the decision to cancel the Camp Courage weekend scheduled for June 2020, and forgo any alternative plans for an in-person camp experience later in the year.

With a mission to support and create a healing space for children, we also feel a strong responsibility to protect their well-being. We have prepared a special outreach plan for each 2020 camp applicant. As always, our greatest goal is to provide enjoyable and healing experiences for children in the face of loss.

If you would like to inquire about Camp Courage 2021 or grief support for a child, please contact The Bob & Merle Scolnik Healing Center at 231-728-3442, 1.800.497.9559 or inquire at

Who? Any child or teen age 6-19 who has experienced the death of a loved one can apply for Camp Courage. Teens age 15-19 may participate as a junior counselor, a program that promotes a healthy expression of feelings, focuses on healing through tailored activities, and fosters leadership skills.

The loved one need not have been cared for by Harbor Hospice. The only cost is a $10 registration fee per camper.
