Camp Caring is a one day camp held to support children and teens in WV that have lost a loved one in recent years. Focusing on large and small group activities, the Camp empowers each child to be able to express their grief and successfully cope with the feelings of loss and trauma.
Camp Caring runs optional concurrent sessions for the adult(s) in the child’s life. The purpose is that each family member is individually strengthened and supported so that the entire family can move forward together to a place of new normal.

When we think about cancer, heart disease, or diabetes, we don’t wait years to treat them. We start way before Stage 4. We begin with prevention. And when people are in the first stage of those diseases, and have a persistent cough, high blood pressure, or high blood sugar, we try immediately to reverse these symptoms.
This is what we should be doing when people have serious mental illnesses, too. When they first begin to experience symptoms such as loss of sleep, feeling tired for no reason, feeling low, feeling anxious, or hearing voices, we should act.
These early symptoms might not ever become serious. Like a cough, they often go away on their own, and are nothing to fear. But when they do not go away, it typically takes ten years from the time they first appear until someone gets a correct diagnosis and proper treatment.
