Circle of Fleur de Lis is a FREE one-week camp for girls ages 9-13 who have experienced the death of a parent. Sunday, August 20, 2017 to Friday, August 25, 2017
We are excited to host YEAR 5 of Circle of Fleur de Lis, a week long traditional overnight camp for bereaved girls.
At Fleur de Lis Camp, we know the value of overnight camp. We know the value of play and engaging in healthy activities such as swimming, kayaking, canoeing, tennis, archery, arts and crafts, softball, basketball, and singing around the campfire. At Circle of Fleur de Lis we know the value of helping children talk about the losses in their lives. Circle of Fleur de Lis brings these together, so our campers can have summer days of childhood fun, meaning, and bonding.
Our program integrates traditional overnight camp activities with the opportunity to do “grief work” in a safe and caring setting, under the guidance of professional bereavement staff, surrounded by supportive peers. Campers are able to share their stories and remember the parent who has died.
The program is entirely free to campers, and free transportation will be provided from two locations in MA and one in NH.
