Abba’s Child


Abba’s Child Camps feature support based counseling for those who have experienced the death of an immediate family member. This loss can be overwhelming for anyone and kids especially need to know that they are not alone as they deal with new and sometimes scary feelings. Due to the high demand for this camp, if you child has attended Abba’s Child camps in the past please enroll them in a regular camp (scholarships are available if needed).

If your child has previously attended an Abba’s Child camp they are not eligible to attend additional times. However, if you’d like them to have some time with an Abba’s child counselor we will be making that available during Junior 2 and Teen 1 REG camps. Please mark that option when you register.

Abba’s Child Junior and Teen camps are in many ways a typical summer camp offering a wide variety of supervised activities. From swimming, canoeing, and the “Rocket”, to archery, horseback riding and sports – there is fun and adventure throughout the day. Two hour support group sessions are scheduled daily for children to interact with peers who are facing similar loss. Art, crafts, music, story telling, writing, and games are designed to assist with the healing process. Afternoons and evenings are spent rotating through the awesome array of camp activities.
