About Katherine’s Camp

Palladium Hospice and Palliative Care sponsors Katherine’s Camp for children grieving the death of a significant loved one in their life. This camp is free! A caring group of trained professionals and volunteers have come together to help children and families work through grief and loss.

Our goal is to provide a safe environment in which children and families can explore and express grief. Grieving is unique for each child and they grieve differently at each stage of development. Katherine’s Camp works with children ages 5-18. Here, children learn healthy grieving habits and positive coping skills. They relate to other children with similar feelings and make new and enduring friendships.

Fun activities like rope courses, campfires, and therapeutic crafts enhance children’s experiences while programming is available for their parents and caregivers. We also have programming for parents and caregivers. Parenting a grieving child and grieving while parenting can present its own set of challenges. We invite parents and guardians to join is in networking with other parents, engage in grief related exercises, and have time for rest/relaxation.
