What is Camp Jamie?
Camp Jamie is a special weekend experience for grieving children ages
6 to 14. This carefully designed program helps children begin to talk
about their feelings related to a death of someone special, and teaches
them coping skills for dealing with those feelings.
Who are the staff members?
Camp Jamie staff includes professional bereavement counselors, specially
trained volunteers and psychologists. Children accepted for Camp Jamie
are paired with an adult volunteer called a Big Buddy, with whom he or
she will spend the weekend. Big Buddies provide companionship, support,
friendship and lots of individualized attention for their Little Buddy.
What are the types of activities?
In addition to grief education and support, campers also enjoy camp activities
such as team games, arts/crafts, hiking, campfires with storytellers and
the Camp Jamie Olympics.
All activities provide plenty of opportunities for the children to express
themselves and develop bonds with others. Through interactions with other
children and adults, campers learn that they are not alone in their grief
What is the cost?
Thanks to our generous donors, Camp Jamie is available to the children
of Frederick County at no charge.
