​Together We Can Grief Camps

Looking for a camp to meet the unique needs of a grieving child or teen? Hospice of the Western Reserve offers a variety of camps in several convenient Northern Ohio locations throughout the spring and summer.

Grief camps provide the opportunity to be with others who are also grieving the death of a loved one. They’re expressive in nature and led by experienced facilitators in art, music, play and nature exploration. 

For more information, please call 216.486.6838.
