Camp Chimaqua
Camp Chimaqua is an overnight weekend camp for grieving children ages 6-12. It is held at Camp Donegal in York County, June 10–12, 2016 from Friday afternoon through late Sunday morning.

Our Goal
Our focus is on helping your child learn about loss, develop coping skills and build self-confidence. This is achievable through fun-filled activities and opportunities for small- and large-group sharing.

The Staff
The Camp is staffed by professional counselors and specially trained volunteers who provide companionship, support and supervision. A camp nurse is available through the duration of the camp.
