Comfort Zone Camp is a nonprofit 501(c)3 bereavement camp that transforms the lives of children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver. The free camps include confidence building programs and age-based support groups that break the emotional isolation grief often brings. Comfort Zone Camps are offered to children 7-17, and are held year-round across the Country. We have offices in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Virginia.
This volunteer training is the first step to becoming a volunteer in California and a Big Buddy to one of our campers during a camp program. Volunteers at our camp programs join the youth experiencing grief in their therapy groups and act as champions and guides through the weekend’s healing process. During Saturday’s six-hour volunteer training you will meet Comfort Zone staff, campers, and volunteers who will explain what to expect at camp and how our program impacts grieving children and teens. You will receive education about childhood bereavement and we’ll give you tips on how to be successful in whichever volunteer role you are selected to fill. We really hope you join us, and are thrilled to have you!
Saturday from 9:00 am - 3:00pm. Lunch will be provided
