Camp Bridges will be held May 24 – 26, 2024
Held at Circle Square Ranch in Spruce Woods, Manitoba, this camp is open to any child in Manitoba, aged 7 – 15 years (revised age limit as of 2018), who is grieving the death of someone significant in their lives. There is no fee to attend the camp.
Camp Bridges will provide a safe environment where the campers have opportunities to interact and share their feelings with other children in similar circumstances. They may learn to understand their grief, recognize that they are not alone, and that their feelings are normal. The camp is not designed to provide grief therapy, but we will acknowledge the loss and grief, honour memories, and have some fun, too.
Camp Bridges is facilitated by dedicated trained volunteers who create a warm, fun filled, caring atmosphere where campers are able to enjoy the outdoors and grow in understanding of their grief.
- They are not alone in their grief.
- They are free to share thoughts and feelings with peers who have also experienced a death of someone they loved.
- Zip Lining
- Horseback Riding
- Campfire Activities
- Memorial Activities
