Services: Camp Courage

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

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 continued COVID-19 precautions, Harbor Hospice leaders have made the decision to not hold an in-person Camp Courage weekend for 2021. With a mission to support grieving children and teenagers, we feel a strong responsibility to protect their well-being.

Our camp directors are working to create an alternative experience this year. They will be holding a live Zoom event on Tuesday, July 20 at 6:00 p.m. that will include a craft activity and group discussion time to provide emotional support and an opportunity for children and teens to talk about their loss and process their grief. Registration is required by July 5 so that we can mail activity kits before the Zoom event. A downloadable registration form is available below or by calling 231-728-3442. Children and teens registered by June 14 will receive two additional care packages (June and August) with grief support activities.

Although the 28th year of Camp Courage will look different, Harbor Hospice is committed to reaching the hearts of grieving children and teens in our community now and beyond.

Thank you for your support and understanding. Please feel free to contact our camp directors with any questions.

Who? Any child or teen age 6-19 who has experienced the death of a loved one can apply for Camp Courage. The loved one need not have been cared for by Harbor Hospice.
