We’re thrilled to announce that registration is now open for our annual Camp Forget-Me-Not at Camp Widjiwagan! This special overnight camp provides a supportive environment where grieving kids and teens can come together to build friendships and engage in traditional camp activities like swimming and zip lining, while also learning to cope with grief.
Led by licensed grief counselors, and trained volunteers, Camp Forget-Me-Not offers a blend of traditional camp fun and therapeutic activities designed to help campers adapt to the loss and remember their important person. Here’s what one parent had to say about their child’s experience:
“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.”
Camp Forget-Me-Not is open to ANY child aged 8-17 who has experienced the death of someone significant. Teens have their own groups and activities, ensuring that everyone receives age-appropriate support and care.
When: August 17-18
Where: YMCA Camp Widjiwagan in Nashville (3088 Smith Springs Rd.)
Cost: Thanks to generous donations, we’re able to offer this transformative experience for just $85 per camper. No one is turned away for a lack of funds.
We also have opportunities for individual volunteers and organizations to join us in making Camp Forget-Me-Not a success. Whether you’re interested in being a camp counselor, serving a meal, or helping behind the scenes, your support is invaluable.
Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity for hope and connection.
