    Circle Camps for Grieving ChildrenWhen a young girl’s parent dies, her childhood is forever altered. Huge challenges lie ahead of her as she confronts a life that is suddenly very different from what it used to be. Circle Camps is a unique program that offers a week of traditional overnight camp to girls who have experienced the death of a parent. By spending time with other girls who understand, Circle campers feel less alone in their loss. The program’s youngest campers are entering third grade, and the oldest are entering eighth. Campers live in bunks with three counselors, and participate in a full program of waterfront, arts and crafts, and land sports. A carefully planned schedule keeps the girls busy from breakfast until bedtime. During the course of the week, there are several structured opportunities for campers to share and rework their stories of loss. Under the guidance of a professional, each bunk comes together in a “Circle Time”. This offers every girl a chance to share memories of her deceased parent with her bunkmates. Crafts projects allow girls to memorialize their parents. Later in the week, there is an evening campfire that focuses on the theme of loss. A service held on the final morning of camp is especially meaningful as all campers and counselors place a personally inscribed rock in a memory garden. And, throughout the week, there are spontaneous conversations – in the bunks, on walks down to the lake, during rest hour – that help campers feel supported and connected to each other. Despite the sadness that is present in these girls’ lives, the days at Circle Camps are typically filled with smiling, laughing and singing. Circle offers its campers a time to play.AlleghenySummer ProgramsSummer Programs

    Dragonfly Forest - Camp ProgramDragonfly Forest is designed for children living with serious illnesses and disorders suffering physically and emotionally not only from coping with the treatments necessary to sustain life, but also from coping with the loss of their childhood. These children spend much of their lives in medical facilities with adults rather than at playgrounds and with other children just being kids. At Dragonfly Forest between morning swims and evening campfires, approximately 120 children become actors on stage, swimmers, artists, athletes, canoe paddlers, stargazers and, most importantly, friends. Our campers experience a magical transformation, as they sing and dance, learn to soar, and develop important friendships that often last a lifetime. At first glance, Dragonfly Forest looks like any other traditional summer camp. There is swimming, boating, fishing, archery, arts and crafts, ropes courses, boating and nature activities. Yet, look more closely and you will find that Dragonfly Forest is specifically designed for children with chronic or life threatening illnesses and disorders and allows them to safely enjoy the activities of a "traditional" camp. Dragonfly Forest is more than a fun-filled getaway. It helps children to better cope with the day-to-day challenges they face. Nestled among hundreds of rolling acres in rural, pristine, Chester County, PA, this unique location provides excitement and adventure for campers in the great outdoors. Between early morning crafts and evening carnivals, children whose lives have been a series of medical procedures and hospital stays are transformed into just "kids." They have a chance to be with others coping with similar illnesses or conditions and realize that they are not alone. Most importantly, the prescription for the day is fun, fun, fun! Laughter, giggles, friendships, excitement, and bursting energy abound throughout our magical forest of tall pines, majestic oaks, nature trails, and a fourteen acre lake. Campers are empowered to do things they never dreamed they could do. They are infused with a spirit of accomplishment at every turn and are allowed to forget that "they have what they have."
