Fall Camp 2023

September 29-Oct 1 

at Camp Karoondinha


Camp Koala is a fun place for grieving children to be able to share their feelings in a safe and supportive environment.


Camp Koala will only survive with the generosity of our community. We appreciate donations of all levels and types. 


Volunteering at Camp Koala is fun, easy, and can have a huge impact on a grieving child's life.


Our Approach

We understand that children grieve differently from adults, and that grieving has no set timeframe. A common misconception is that bereavement camps are full of tears and sadness. Not true! Camp is full of fun, good times, and friendship!


Most kids don't know that they're not alone until they come to camp. We want each child who attends our camp to leave with a sense of hope, that they are not alone in their grief, and hope that they will continue to seek help in their journey towards healing.


Since loss knows no bounds, our camp is provided free of charge to all camper families. Our model is companioning the grieving child, and peer-support.
