Camp Maple Leaf with support from Seasons Centre for Grieving Children

Presents:  Camp Skein 2023

A camp for children 7 – 16 grieving the death of a parent or sibling, supporting them to gain strength from each other, as they realize the power they have within themselves

Kawartha Lakes, Ontario  (Private Island) 

The Program:

With an emphasis on over the top fun, through exciting land and water-based activities, Camp Skein provides both guided and supportive outlets for grief and remembering in a tranquil, natural, child friendly environment.   Camp Skein has the following goals for your children that we take from the flight of the geese:

  • Gain strength through friendship.
  • It’s ok to ask for help and lean on each other.
  • It’s good to take turns being the support and the supporter
  • Communication is the key to just about everything.
  • We are not alone
