Children's Grief Connection serves grieving families in three ways: Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp, Online Grief Support Groups and Grief Education
Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp
Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camps help families come together to heal. Here, each family member can join in activities with a group of their peers. Programming follows the same model for each group, but is adapted to age level and ability. In this way, families leave camp with shared experiences and gain a common language to use as they continue their lifelong grief journey.
Hearts of Hope Camp serves family members from preschool through grandparenthood. On-site daycare for birth to age three is provided. I
Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp is available free of charge thanks to the generosity of our supporters. A $150 refundable family deposit is required at registration. Register online at www.childrensgriefconnection.com
Children's Grief Connection strives to achieve the founding vision to "create a world where the needs of grieving children are understood and met." In our work, we follow our mission on a daily basis, "Connecting Grieving Families with Hope".
Online Support Groups
Some families do not feel ready to travel and meet others as a unit for months and even years following the death of a loved one. Many families who have attended Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp long to continue to meet with others who have shared experience.
That is why Children's Grief Connection is launching online grief conversations for teens (14-17) , emerging adults (18-24) and Parents/Adults . Conversation groups are free, meet weekly, and use the same approach and models as Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp.

The grief journey is a path well-traveled. Children's Grief Connection has collected in one place the teaching and tools used by grief professionals--counselors, psychologists and others--and offers these in a series of online videos that you can access through our website.
Our online grief education videos are available for you to use on your own at any time. The video library is organized according to theme and topic so you can easily find the video that meets your current need.
