Our free Healing Hearts Family Bereavement Camp allows families who have experienced the loss of a loved one to cancer to come together for a weekend retreat. Each year, families spend three days at a working dude ranch in the beautiful Poconos. Fun activities like swimming, horseback riding, and fishing are combined with therapeutic grief activities led by CancerCare professional oncology social workers. This camp is for families: parents or guardians with children and teens ages 4 and up, who have lost a loved one to cancer within the past two years.

“The camp is a place where the families can come together and not feel different,” explains CancerCare’s Claire Grainger, LCSW. “The kids meet others who have experienced a similar loss and they don’t have to explain anything to one another…There are a lot of tears, but there is also so much laughter. They’ve all found new friends – people that understand.”
