Mark your calendars! Camp Courage 2015 will be held June 2 - 5. Registration will begin March 1, 2015.
Camp Courage is a week-long camp for children who have suffered the loss of a loved one through death, divorce, separation, incarceration or deployment. Children participate in recreational activities that promote self-esteem, encourage self-healing, and provide an outlet for unexpressed emotions.
The camp offers a supportive environment and encourages trust, self-confidence and an understanding of the grief process. In addition, with the help of specially trained counselors, campers develop healthy coping skills as a result of the variety of grief exercises offered, which ultimately help build self confidence, trust, and an understanding of the grief process.
Camp Courage is held at Big Country Baptist Encampment in Leuders, Texas, as is available to children, third grade through 12th grade (must have completed second grade), who are dealing with loss due to a death, divorce, or other painful transition. A $10 application fee per camper is required.
