Camp Bearable 2018

  • Share:
Name: Camp Bearable 2018
Date: May 18, 2018 - May 20, 2018
Event Description:

Camp Bearable allows kids a safe place to talk to not only trained counselors but also to other kids about how they feel, and knowing it is ok to feel that way.  Seeing kids come to camp on Friday evening, unsure of what the weekend is all about, to seeing them leave with a sense of happiness and freedom on Sunday is an awesome sense of accomplishment. Many kids ask to return the next year because they had such a good time!!

Camp Bearable began after hurricane Katrina.  It is a grief camp for kid’s ages 7-12 that had lost a loved one and need help coping with their grief.  Teachers, chaplains, social workers and many others, all volunteer their time for this camp.
