Camp Good Mourning is the highlight of the year for Kate’s Club members and volunteers! This special bi-annual gathering brings kids together in a traditional camp setting to enjoy activities, friendship and to learn how to deal with their grief in a positive way. At Camp Twin Lakes in Winder, Georgia, kids swim, hike, rock climb, play music, make arts and crafts and attend the annual camp dance.

Children also participate in grief support activities which support sharing their loss with their peers and learning new ways to cope with their feelings. Camp costs about $500 per camper, and as with all Kate’s Club programming, we offer it 100% free of charge to members and their families. If you’d like to help a grieving child experience this life-changing weekend at Camp Good Mourning, donate here.

For the second year in a row, Camp Good Mourning takes place on two different weekends. Our Spring camp runs from April 27th to April 29th and our Summer camp runs August 24th – August 26th, 2018.
