Applications are now being accepted for our next camp, May 14-15, 2016. This is a two day camp from 10-4pm both days. This camp is mostly Art Therapy and Play Therapy based, and was a huge success last year. We made a lot of great stuff and a lot of friends. Please submit your application asap, because this camp fills up quickly. We accept youth campers ages 6-12 and teens who have experienced the death of a parent, primary caregiver or sibling.
