Camp Comfort

Camp Comfort is a weekend camp offered twice each summer by Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice to address the special needs of grieving children ages 6 to 12.

Dear Parent or Guardian,

While issues of grief and loss are hard for anyone to handle, they can be especially confusing and painful for children. We invite your children to take part in what could be a positive, healing experience. Sharing with other children who are in similar situations and knowing that they are not alone can be very helpful. Children often carry a heavy burden when someone they love dies. Our hope is that a Camp Comfort weekend will assist children in understanding their loss. We cannot take your children’s grief away. We will, however, give them an opportunity to discover skills, develop a better understanding of their grief, and help them preserve positive memories of their loved one.

–With hope for healing,
The Camp Comfort Staff

Camp Comfort offers children a supportive environment where they can gain an understanding of grief and loss. Children learn ways to cope with their grief through workshops and activities, building skills that will help them now and throughout their lives. More than 1,500 children have attended Camp Comfort since its inception in 1995.

Grief workshops are balanced with recreational activities like swimming, hiking, and fishing so children feel free to have fun and just be kids.

All activities are supervised by trained counselors, staff, and volunteers.

Camp Comfort is held near Georgetown, Colorado, 35 miles west of Denver, just off of I-70. The cost, $175 per child, includes all meals, snacks, overnight accommodations, recreation, and workshops. Some scholarships are available for those unable to pay all or part of the registration fee.
