Healing Hearts Day Camp “Buddy”
Each year, the fourth Saturday in April, The Healing Place offers a one day, day
camp for children who have lost a loved one. Each camper is paired with an adult called a “Buddy.” They Buddy will hang out with, listen to, play games, and do fun arts & crafts with a child. A volunteer training is conducted the day of the day camp.
We are looking for student interns that are interested in grief and loss, human services, psychology, social work, marketing & communications, etc.
