Alive’s Grief Camp for Youth


Alive’s grief support camps are safe places for kids and teens who are grieving the death of someone important in their life. In small peer groups, our grief counselors help kids explore feelings, learn healthy ways to cope, and find out they are not alone. There are plenty of fun activities as well!

Camp Forget-Me-Not

This camp will be held August 13-14, 2022 at the fabulous YMCA Camp Widjiwagan located just 20 minutes east of downtown Nashville. Campers will arrive at 10:30 a.m. Saturday and stay overnight. Closing ceremony will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
