Healing the biggest wounds on the smallest hearts.
Friendship, grief management, hope
To provide a safe environment for child survivors to connect with one another while learning constructive ways to deal with the often unspeakable and fierce emotion of losing a parent to suicide. Our week-long focus will be to provide and explore constructive forms of self-expression through traditional and recreational therapies. Most importantly, we will empower campers to utilize the tools and resources we provide so that they may draw upon them throughout their lives.
A community of survivors
Therapy can mean just being comfortable enough to talk about your hardest moment or knowing you are not alone. Campers' shared loss and experience affords them the opportunity of forming deep, knowing bonds with others and thereby forging supportive connections that we hope will last a lifetime.
Suicide leaves survivors feeling alone and rejected. These feelings can have a profound and lasting effect on personal outlook. Camp Kita's aim is to reinforce the good, remember the great and get better together. Our focus on grief—on shattering apart—will dovetail with an equally important focus on hope—the power and purpose of piecing oneself together.
