My on-line friend, Ferree Hardy, has compiled some wonderful childrens’ grief resources. Please visit her blog,  Widow’s Christian Place for more Christian grief camps.

With summer upon us, have you considered finding a “grief camp” for your children to attend?

Often, your local hospice will sponsor such a thing. Exclusively Christian grief camps for kids are rare, so prayerfully consider what’s available in your community. Children might not seem like they need any help—yet. But if you can help equip them now for later on when they’re ready to deal with it, you’ll be a step ahead.Grief Camps:Camp Erin by the Moyer Foundation. Comfort Zone Camp camps are in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, VirginiaOther resources for grieving children:National Alliance for Grieving Children Many articles about grieving children, and a map you can click on for help your area.New York Life Foundation This website link goes directly to the children’s page, but has lots of other help too

Hello Grief I’ve set up this link to the Hello Grief page of state-by-state resources. Find your state, click on it to discover the available programs.

Please remember that children can take many years to work through their grief. I was told by a counselor that on average, it can take children about 4 and a half years. I never forgot what she said and made sure that before I got on with my life in certain areas, I made sure my children made it through their grief first.

Read more about how I helped my children through their grief in my book: A Widow’s Pursuit: Finding Out There’s More to Life than Grief.
