We at Camp Koala 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.

Camp Koala celebrates another 15 years, at the 2023 Gala!
What an amazing 12th annual GALA!! Thank you to all of our supporters for coming out and making this our biggest fundraiser ever, raising over $50,000 for our children's grief programs. Thanks so much to everyone who attended and to all of our auction donors, mostly local small businesses who see the value in having a grief support center in our own community.
Thank You for a Wonderful Gala!
