What is Camp Evergreen?
Camp Evergreen is a youth grief camp which strives to provide a safe, healthy, supportive and accepting atmosphere for youth to share experiences and feelings associated with the death of a loved one. We service approximately 50 children, ages 8 through 16, each year.
What does camp cost?
Free! Thanks to generous community financial support and the participation of a dedicated volunteer staff, there is no fee for campers to attend.
What happens at camp?
Campers participate in fun adventures organized and facilitated by qualified camp staff and volunteers.
The many adventures are designed to:
– develop self confidence,
– build trust,
– teach coping skills, and
– allow kids to simply be kids again.
Camp Evergreen is a safe space to share and hear the stories of loss from peers, which helps to validate feelings and foster hope in knowing that campers are not alone.
Our staff includes a Camp Director, Medical Staff, and trained volunteers.
The camp experience includes:
– Sleeping in cabins (supervised and organized by age and gender)
– Healthy meals and snacks
– Restroom facilities
– Private showers
– Swimming with certified lifeguard supervision
– Recreational play field
– Campfire pit
– Climbing wall and Zip line
– Hiking trails
Where is camp located?
