The Moyer Foundation is hosting the 2nd Annual National Bereavement Camp Conference™ in Seattle, Washington.  The objective of the National Bereavement Camp Conference™ is to give bereavement professionals and organizations information and training on programming, organizing and fund raising for bereavement camps for children and teens.

Provide an overall view of bereavement camp structures and best practices across the country by creating a forum of exchange, learning and collaboration through sharing of timely clinical information, programs, advances in research and successful ideas for new or existing bereavement camps.  Attendees will walk away with knowledge on how to create, implement and evaluate quality bereavement camps throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Provide information on current topics and ideas for implementation related to childhood bereavement camps such as:
           •  Innovative program models
           •  Resident camp activities
           •  Overall camp structures
           •  Fun/unique ideas for activities and camp sessions
           •  Fundraising, PR and marketing 

          •  Promote networking among attendees - including health caregivers, counselors, educators, researchers, as well as volunteers and parent advocates who work with bereaved families across North America.
