Camp Phoenix Teen Grief Camp at Terrapin Adventures

August 15 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm

Our teens’ grief camp, Camp Phoenix, will take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, at Terrapin Adventures at Historic Savage Mill at 8600 Foundry St. As this is an outdoor event that has limited participation, the team is confident of it can offer a safe experience for all participants, and will take all the necessary precautions, following guidelines from the Center for Disease Control.

By using team building exercises and other activities to help them get to know each other, teens ages 13 to 18, will find a space where the many emotions of grief are met with care and compassion. Professional counselors offer the expertise to support these teens as they navigate grief while having fun and discovering they are not alone. Registration is required by Aug. 3. The cost is $40, and includes snacks, meals, activities and a T-Shirt.

Scholarships are available; inquire upon registering. Call 888-501-7077 or email griefinfo@chesapeakelifecenter.org.

The center’s services are perhaps needed now more than ever in its history, as individuals and the community grapple with grief in physical isolation due to the COVID-19 health emergency. In response, the center has moved as many of its group and individual bereavement counseling services as is feasible to telehealth. The team’s counselors have all received training in telehealth to be sure that their services meet best practice standards.
