Camp Charlie Safe Harbor Bereavement Camp
Camp Charlie is a week-long bereavement camp run by Safe Harbor, an Abington – Jefferson Health’s program for grieving children, teens and their families. Camp Charlie is held annually during the last week of June.  Children ages 6 to 12 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver can attend this camp free of charge.

A supportive and Healing Environment
Camp Charlie provides children with a safe place and opportunity to address their grief.  Campers are aided by staff, volunteers and buddies in acknowledging death, saying goodbye, reliving memories and memorializing their loved ones.  Buddies are selected teens who have attended Safe Harbor following a significant loss of their own.  They are trained to provide support, mentorship and inspiration to the young campers all while focusing on hope and fun.
