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 community, we extend appreciation to the health professionals and community leaders for their support and guidance during a difficult time with the COVID-19 virus pandemic. We understand the concern of this health-related issue and potential disruptions impacting everyone at some level.
This year, we are offering a series of day camps:
