Free overnight camp for children dealing with bereavement — register now for camp in April 2019

The Counseling Center at Stella Maris is pleased and excited to announce the dates of its 9th annual overnight bereavement camp for childrenCamp Me Too, continuing its more than 30-year commitment to providing bereavement services to children throughout Maryland.

Camp Me Too! will again be held on the beautiful grounds of Camp Puh’Tok in Monkton, Maryland. The overnight camp offers three days and two nights of programming, beginning after school on Friday, April 26 and culminating at noon on Sunday, April 28.

Thanks to generous community donors, The Counseling Center is able to offer this program at no charge to grieving children from ages 8 – 16.

This will be a meaningful event that can make a transformative difference in the life of a grieving child. All applicants must complete a registration form and attend an in-person interview at The Counseling Center at Stella Maris. Registrations are available online or they can be sent to prospective campers via regular mail. Please note the camp can only accept 26 campers, and spots are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so families are encouraged to register early. Children who have already attended Camp Me Too! may ask to be added to the waiting list, but spots will first be offered to those who haven’t yet had an opportunity to attend the camp.
