Lionheart Camp for Kids is here to help children aged 5-17 years navigate their grief journey following the death of a loved one. We want children and their families to understand grief as a natural, healthy and normal response to loss.
Our grief support programs are designed to educate both children, teens and the adults in their lives about bereavement, ensuring that the whole family unit is strengthened and empowered on their grief journey. We provide a safe, fun-filled space for children and teens to explore and understand their grief and recognise that while grief is one part of their life, it doesn’t need to define them. Lionheart also offers a unique and special opportunity to connect with a compassionate community of other children and families who understand what it is like to experience the death of a parent or sibling.
New Families Camp
All Lionheart families start their journey with us by attending our free foundational program called New Families Camp. This 2-day program is for children aged 5 -17 years who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver regardless of the cause of death. Held a few times a year, our upcoming camp dates are:
Perth Metro – April 2024
Regional (Geraldton) – July 2024
We want all families to be able to access the bereavement support they need without the barrier of fees. This means that our programs are currently free to attend and are funded by grants and community donations. If you are in a position to make a donation, you will be helping us to offer more grieving children the expert support they need.
