This year’s free youth grief support retreat will be held Friday–Sunday, August 10–12. Join us in the beautiful Sonoma County redwoods for a healing weekend you will never forget!

By the Bay Camp — for Grieving Children & Teens

August 10–12, 2018

Young people can be deeply affected by the loss of someone close to them. However, they grieve differently than adults and need specialized support and care.

Our annual youth grief support weekend, By the Bay Camp, helps children and teens ages 7–17 express grief, build trust and self-esteem, and learn to cope with their loss, through a unique combination of therapeutic activities, traditional camp fun and relaxation in the beautiful Sonoma County redwoods.

By the Bay Camp is co-presented by Hospice by the Bay and  Comfort Zone Camp, and is FREE to campers. Bus transportation, meals, snacks and activities are all included.

In addition to support groups and healing rituals, campers can enjoy swimming, hiking, games, sports, campfires and crafts. Parents join campers for short activities at drop-off and pick-up.
