Helping Young Hearts Heal
Caring Hearts Camp is a weekend camp for children and teens who have recently experienced a loss due to the death of a family member or friend. This memorable weekend provides our campers with the opportunity to meet other children and teens who are also going through similar grief experiences, helping young people learn they are not alone.
Led by trained staff and volunteers, our program provides age-appropriate guided activities aimed at working through camper’s grief, while also ensuring a fun and impactful camp experience. Our activities may include; horseback riding, canoeing, rockwall climbing, crafts, campfire and many more.
- Open to residents of Saskatchewan, age 6 – 16 years who have experienced a death loss in the past 2 years.
- Campers are eligible to attend a total of 2 camps over a 2 year period
- Camps are held in May and September, each for 3 days and 2 nights, at Dallas Valley Ranch Camp.
- There is no cost for our campers to attend

Caring Hearts Camp was first introduced into our province in 1997 when our organization saw the challenges so many families and their children faced when struggling with the grieving process. Since then, we have had more than 1,600 campers from 92 communities across Saskatchewan pass through this therapeutic program.
After 22 years, we are making some BIG changes to our camp programming. With changes to our camper demographics and the types of trauma and compounding loss that we have seen in recent years, we have decided to evaluate our program and make the necessary adjustments to ensure that we can continue to support our campers through their complex grief journey. As a result, we will not be hosting our fall session of camp.
We look forward to welcoming all of our camp families to a newly revamped program in spring 2020! Applications for campers and volunteers are in development and we will be sure to announce when registration opens.
