Once again, camp is being planned for the summer of 2015!  Camp will be from Friday, July 24th through Sunday, July 26th.  Once again, it will be at the YMCA Camp Nissokone in Oscoda, MI.  If you know of a child who may benefit from attending our camp for grieving children, please contact us as soon as possible and we will see that they get an application, or have them print the application from this site.  The only thing that is different from last year is the date.  Please send your applications in as soon as you can and you will have a better chance of attending.

A camper's story

on Mon, 03/23/2015 - 18:52

My name is Jacob. When I was 11 years old I lost my best friend and role model to suicide. He was like a dad to me and spent time doing things a dad would do with a kid. Losing him has been the hardest thing I have ever had to endure. I never got to say goodbye and tell him how important he was to me. I attended Camp Live, Laugh, Love and met my teen buddy Curtis (see photo above)who had also experienced the suicide of a close friend. It was helpful to share with him and I didn’t feel so alone or different. He helped me make a memory journal that I was able to put my thoughts in.
