Press Room

We believe that every child deserves to live a life rich with possibility.

We are a national network of summer camps for children and teens who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver. Since 2009, Experience Camps has transformed the lives of thousands of children by reframing the experience of their grief and empowering them with the confidence, skills, and support to move forward with their lives.

We give grieving children
experiences that change
their lives forever.

At Experience Camps, everyone understands what it’s like to lose someone important. Here, kids can laugh, cry, play, honor the memory of the person who died, and forget the grief that weighs them down. At camp, they learn they are not alone.
