Sheilah A. Doyle Foundation hosts the 11th annual bereavement camp in Illinois – called “Camp Sheilah”. This program is a strength-based, child-focused model, which includes age-based support groups facilitated by trained grief specialists. Both camp and support groups will facilitate different icebreakers, confidence-building activities and other activities designed to facilitate trust, expression, and interaction among them.
