What is Camp LOLO?
Camp LOLO is a two-day camp for children and teens who are grieving the death of someone close to them. LOLO stands for loss of a loved one. Camp is comprised of fun-filled camp activities paired with grief support therapy to help children and teens cope with loss.
Who can attend?
The camp is open to anyone ages 6 to 17 who has experienced the death of a family member or someone close to them. For campers who attended any previous year, we will accept again under the recommendation of a professional due to having the same curriculum each year. We will prioritize new campers first and returning campers will be put on a waiting list.
Can I volunteer if I'm related to a camper?
NO! We want this experience to fully benefit the camper so they can let go of any responsibilities they may have taken on since the passing of a loved one or any other feelings that may tie into their current household emotions. We want our campers to take on their own identities.
When is it?
Camp LOLO’s annual camp will be held on the Friday and Saturday over Father's day weekend in June at Coolwater Creek in Meridian, Idaho.
How much does Camp LOLO cost?
Camp LOLO is free to all campers. It is made possible by the generous support of local business, community organizations, and wonderful volunteers who make it possible to provide this service at no cost to bereaved families.
