16th Annual Camp Bridges Weekend Set for Circle Square Ranch, Austin MB

“Love builds bridges where there are none”

Prairie Mountain Health is organizing the16th annual Camp Bridges, a weekend camp for bereaved children and teens. Camp Bridges will be held at Circle Square Ranch, Austin MB on May 24, 25 and 26, 2024. The goal of Camp Bridges is to support children and teens with their grief and bereavement. This is achieved through activities designed to help share grief and honour memories in a caring community environment.

Camp Bridges provides a safe, supportive and fun environment where grieving children and teens learn that they are not alone in their grief and are free to share their thoughts and feelings with peers who are going through a similar experience. The camp is intended to complement existing bereavement services for children and teens by providing a weekend of “caring, sharing and memories”.

Camp Bridges accepts up to 40 applicants each year.  Children and youth between the ages of 7-15 years of age, who reside in Manitoba, are welcome to apply.  If you have any questions please contact a member of the Camp Bridges Planning Committee.  The application deadline is May 1, 2024.

Volunteers are needed for Camp Bridges 2024.  Volunteering is a rewarding experience that makes a difference in the lives of children and youth.  Please contact Carla Mitchell (204-578-2310) for more information.  The application deadline for volunteers is March 20th, 2024.

Donations are being accepted to cover the cost of camp rental, meals and activities, so that campers may attend at no cost. If you wish to donate to Camp Bridges please contact Melissa Peters at 204-578-2340 or [email protected].
