Grief and Loss

 

Children's Grief Connection

The Minnesota Foundation for Children operates Children's Grief Connection (formerly Camp Amanda-Minnesota), a grief camp that provides an encouraging environment and support to children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or significant friend.  These two-day camps provide opportunities for children to meet other children whose loved ones have died and to share their feelings and memories.  Support for teens and families has recently been added as a resource through the Children's Grief Connection.  

The Minnesota Foundation for Children believes that mourning is a process, not a journey or one-time event; that mourning is a natural reaction to the death of a loved one, not an illness to be cured or diagnosed; and that grieving children will often talk through or play out their concerns and fears if provided with a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment.
