Camp Oak Leaf

Camp Oak Leaf is for Children’s Wisconsin families who have experienced the death of a child. All family members, infant through adult, are invited to attend. Camp Oak Leaf provides a balance of fun activities (sports, games, art, etc.) with grief education & projects that are age appropriate for each member of the family. Families will have the opportunity to have the camp experience, while having access to modern comforts. Families sleep in a dorm like setting, each room has its own private bath. Our hope is the weekend's activities will help family members heal and connect with each other, find comfort in connecting with other grieving families, and provide shared experiences that will support them in their grief journey in the days, months and years to come.
