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

Experience Camps is a nonprofit that champions the nation’s 5.3 million U.S. children who will experience the death of a parent or sibling by the time they reach 18. We run a network of no-cost camps that help grieving children thrive by building their coping resources, confidence, and resilience so they can experience a life rich with possibility. Our content addresses childhood grief as an urgent health issue while helping to establish a more grief-sensitive culture for all of us.
