Reflect. Reconnect. Rediscover.

Grief Camp for Arkansas Children and Families

Losing a loved one is difficult for everyone, and grieving a loss is essential to accepting painful feelings and creating an opportunity for growth and a new sense of normal.

Camp Healing Hearts is for children ages 5 to 18 and their families who have lost a loved one. Utilizing both therapy and recreation, our camp offers children and families an opportunity to discover their own inner strength. We require an adult caregiver accompany the grieving child or children attending camp.

Come to Camp

Camp Healing Hearts is a FREE overnight camp at Camp Aldersgate in Little Rock and includes heart-to-heart time, swimming, fishing, crafts, games, campfires and s’mores, a challenge course and much more. Camp Healing Hearts is made possible by community partners in the Alliance for Grief and Loss, including Arkansas Children’s Hospital, Little Rock School District, Pulaski County Special School District, Griffin-Leggett Funeral Homes, Delta Society and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
