About Camp Bridges

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.
