Chameleon's Journey

 

Row Boat CJHelp and Hope for Kids

Chameleon’s Journey™ grief camp for children and teens continued its mission of encouraging help, hope, and healing with another successful camp in the books for 2016! 

Since its inception in 2000, the annual overnight camp, held at Camp Thunderbird in Lake Wylie, South Carolina, has served over a thousand campers, ages 7-17.   
 
The grief camp revolves around activities that provide opportunities to express grief and other emotions through music, drama, writing, and visual art. Recreational activities are also part of the camp, allowing grieving campers to meet the important need for physical activity.  Campers are supported in a confidential, safe, and caring environment and they come away from camp with an increased knowledge of the grieving process. They also develop new relationships to help them realize that they are not alone in their grief.

Chameleon’s Journey is provided free of charge and is made possible through the generous support of community members and civic organizations.  Some of our major donors are the Junior League of Charlotte, Inc., Carolina Panthers, Merancas Foundation, Inc., The Quilter's Station, Inc., Mr. & Mrs. Michael Anthony, RISC Networks, LLC, Rotary Club of South Charlotte, and our Send a Kid to Camp Sponsors.   

 

The 17th Annual Chameleon's Journey Grief Camp was held on October 15-16, 2016.  For more information, please contact us at 704.375.0100 or dawaltl@hpccr.org.
