What is Camp Sapling?

Camp Sapling is a free one-day grief camp for children 5 through 11 years old who are either too young for Camp Evergreen or are just not quite ready for an overnight camp.


We strive to provide a safe, healthy, supportive and accepting atmosphere for youth to share experiences and feelings associated with the death of a loved one.  

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 Sapling staff includes a Camp Director and trained volunteers.

The camp experience includes:

– Healthy lunch and snack
– Grief activities

– Outdoor games
