15th Annual Camp Bridges Weekend

February 2020

15th Annual Camp Bridges Weekend Set for Circle Square Ranch, Austin MB Love builds bridges where there are none.

Prairie Mountain Health and Southern Health-Santé Sud are organizing the fifteenth annual Camp Bridges weekend, a weekend camp for bereaved children and teens. Camp Bridges will be held at Circle Square Ranch, Austin MB on May 29, 30 and 31, 2020. 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.

The Camp will provide 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. This camp is intended to complement existing bereavement services for children and teens by providing a weekend of “caring and sharing”.

Donations are being accepted to cover the cost of camp rental, meals and activities, so that campers may attend at no cost. Anyone wishing to make a donation to Camp Bridges or seeking more information about the camp may contact their regional Palliative Care representative.  

Camp Bridges cannot occur without its wonderful volunteers. Please consider joining the Camp Bridges 2020 team by volunteering with these youth.  It will make a difference in their lives. Please consider filling out the volunteer application available at prairiemountainhealth.ca and at southernhealth.ca. You may also contact Melissa Peters or Brigitte Remillard for more information.  The application deadline for volunteers is March 23, 2020.

Camp Bridges 2019 was held last year at Camp Wannakumbac and hosted 39 children and teens between the ages of 7 and 15. Camper Applications can be obtained from your regional Palliative Care representative and are requested by May 1, 2020.
