Potential Volunteers

Thank you for considering Ted and Jane’s Camp Courage as a place to give your time and talent. Camp Courage is an overnight camp for children ages 6 - 17 who have experienced the loss of a loved one through death. The camp offers a safe place to share their feelings of grief and to learn coping skills to help them on their grief journey.

Participating in this camp is both a privilege and an honor to be a part of the lives of these children and their families. The kids you meet will inspire, teach, and most of all touch your heart. It is a weekend full of fun, newfound friendships, challenges and incredible courage.
