Alive’s Grief Camp for Youth

Alive’s overnight grief camp, Camp Forget-Me-Not, is for ANY child (aged 8-17) who has experienced the death of someone significant. Camp Forget-Me-Not combines traditional camp fun (ziplining, swimming and water slides) with therapeutic activities from Alive’s licensed grief counselors to remember loved ones and make connections with peers who are also grieving. Teens have their own groups and activities.

Camp Forget-Me-Not

This camp will be held August 17-18, 2024 at the fabulous YMCA Camp Widjiwagan located just 20 minutes east of downtown Nashville. Campers will arrive Saturday morning, and our closing ceremony will take place Sunday afternoon.

Please email to request camp information.

This was the most amazing experience for my daughter. I recommend anyone with a child who has experienced a loss be a part of the camp. The tools provided and being able to talk with other kids the same age is so impactful. My daughter wants to be a part of it every year and even become a camp counselor when she is old enough to help others in the future.
