Each year the kids of Kate’s Club head to Rutledge, Georgia for their retreat at Camp Twin Lakes. Kate’s Club uses this traditional camp setting to allow the kids to enjoy activities, friendship and learn how to deal with their grief in a positive way.

Camp Twin Lakes Project

One of the activities the kids participated in last summer was a weaving project. Each child wrote down a memory, a message, or thought about their loved one who had passed away on a piece of fabric. The children had an opportunity to share the message, and then all of the messages were woven together into a teepee. The teepee was then deconstructed and is now displayed in the Kate’s Club Clubhouse as a memory of that bonding experience.

If your child is grieving the loss of a loved one and could benefit from the friendships built at a bereavement camp, visit the Camp Erin website to find a camp near you.

If you would like to do a similar project with your family to a celebrate a loved one, Paper Weaving Craft includes step by step instructions on their website.
