Talbot Hospice is Talbot County’s premier source of grief support, and we are proud to host an annual grief support camp for children. Our children's bereavement camp was created for children who have experienced the death of someone close to them regardless of whether their loved one was served by Talbot Hospice. The camp is offered free of charge thanks to our generous donors. Kids who come to our grief camp have something in common -  they all know what it is like to lose someone special to them.

Any child in Grades 1-5 on the Mid-shore who has experienced the death of a loved one.

Saturday, May 18th, 9am - 3pm AND Sunday, May 19th, 9am - 2 pm

Talbot Agriculture Center, 106539 Hiners Lane, Easton, MD 21601

Children need an outlet for their grief, just as adults do. Children express themselves through play and peer support, so camp is the perfect mix of work and fun!

Why is a Camp experience important?

  • Camp experiences build an atmosphere of comradery and healing
  • Camp promotes peer support which in turn fosters confidence, better self-esteem and inclusivity
  • Camp promotes a balanced environment of fun and work
  • Camp provides practical, life-long skills to handle difficult life experiences

Who is responsible for watching/overseeing my children?
Camp is led by a team of professional staff as well as specially trained volunteers.

What is included in camp?

  • Team-oriented games and activities
  • Participation in group sharing activities to normalize and validate grief experience
  • Therapeutic arts & crafts
  • Supervised downtime to bond with other campers
  • Opportunity to connect with other kids who have had similar experiences
  • Connections with professional grief counselors
