Where Is It Held?

We are based both in the backyard garden and in our weather protected outdoor canopies and indoors with physical distancing and full Covid safety procedures in place during restrictions
We may also include time on the nearby nature trails as part of our sessions
What Is Involved?
Designed and delivered by warm, compassionate Child Life Specialists, this 6 week program will create a safe space for grieving children to:
Understand and normalize their experience
Learn shared language for expressing difficult emotions
Actively create their own ‘Coping Kit’ for hard moments
Participate in hands-on memory-making activities
Ask questions and have their misconceptions clarified around death, bereavement and grief
Interact with other kids who ‘get it’ in a Covid-safe environment
Have a space and time set aside where they don’t have to be strong for other grieving family members
We will provide parents/caregivers with a list of trusted resources so that you are able to reiterate the themes we are exploring as a family, use shared language to understand and express emotions, and feel equipped to continue these conversations at home.
There will also be opportunities to commmunicate with your child’s coaches and submit specific questions or concerns.
How Much Does It Cost?
The full program cost is $600, due on registration
The financial commitment is for the full 6 weeks(spaces are restricted due to Covid distancing and number capping requirements)
Participants are billed for every session regardless of attendance (virtual make-ups provided for sessions missed due to illness or isolation)
