SandCastles Camp

It’s Almost Time for SandCastles Camp!

It is that time of year again! Summer camp season is upon us. SandCastles Camp 2021: Roller Coasters, Cotton Candy, and Grief will be a virtual experience on August 6 and 7, full of fun and treats while coping with grief, learning, and healing together.

Our 2021 SandCastles Camp marks our historic 25-year milestone, and we couldn’t be more proud!

Volunteer for SandCastles Camp

We are always looking for passionate volunteers eager to help children along their grief journey; even if it’s just for a short, virtual weekend. We need YOUR help! SandCastles Camp will be held the weekend of August 6th and 7th. We rely on volunteers during this memorable weekend experience and have many different opportunities available.

Camp is a lot of work from the staff side. Yet, the power and beauty of what unfolds in a camp experience are unparalleled and worth every minute of effort and every dollar (carefully) spent—being together with peers, sharing, learning, healing, coping, and building friendships. It all happens. Even in a virtual experience, the time spent in this unique space is so powerful. We are excitedly developing creative activities and adventures to dive deep into our experiences.

Our camp is designed to challenge and reward both children and adults with memorable learning and growth. We will provide you with the complete SandCastles volunteer training program before camp, which will prepare you to work as a support group facilitator.

If you are interested in joining our team or finding out more information about this fun-filled, challenging, memorable, and potentially life-changing experience, please contact us at 313-771-7005 or Please indicate you are calling to become a volunteer for SandCastles Camp.

Your commitment will make a big difference in the lives of grieving children in our community.
