The Grande Prairie & District Grief Support Association's mission is to provide children and youth with education and support through their grief journey. This is done through support groups, school groups, one-on-one counseling and Camp Heal-A-Heart, a summer bereavement camp for children and youth. Meeting our goal involves: identification of feelings, learning alternate coping strategies and developing support networks.
Our programs are built to help children and families who have been affected by loss. Our programs target youth ages five to sixteen who have experienced any type of loss through death, divorce, separation, or not living with their biological families. Many of the youth attending camp have a number of grief and trauma issues and often feel alone and isolated believing that they are the only ones experiencing these issues. At the end of our programs children are relieved to learn that they are not alone in their grief journey.
80% of the children coming to camp live at or below the poverty level. The cost for camp is on a sliding fee scale and we never turn away children due to lack of money. Donations help to ensure that all children who want to attend camp are able to attend.
