Camp Monarch

Helping Children Heal

Camp Monarchs are in full swing. This past Saturday, the first of 4 Camp Monarchs took placed in Tallahassee. We have 3 more planned between now and the first Saturday of November.

Camp Monarch is a free one day children’s event designed to help children who have experienced a loss of a loved one. Through fun activities such as fishing, rock wall climbing, and/or horseback riding, children learn about grief and loss along with other children who have experienced similar losses. It is a safe environment for children to learn, share…and have fun!

Covenant Hospice offers 4 Camp Monarchs every year, thanks to generous donations from people in our community. Each Camp Monarch is able to assist in the healing process of over 25 children. Over the years, since we began offering Camp Monarch, we have helped over 1,000 children begin or continue the healing process following the loss of a loved one.

The 3 remaining Camp Monarchs will be held in Chipley, Niceville, and Milton,Florida.

For more information about the camps and how you maybe able to attend or help us, please visit the Covenant Hospice website www.covenanthospice.org/camp-monarch/ or email me at campmonarch@covenanthospice.org.

  1. What a great way to help the healing process. As a parent I have struggled with how to best help my children come to terms with loss and grieving. As their mother all I want to do is kiss it and make it better…and it tears at your heart when you realize that’s not enough. I think these camps are a great way for the children to learn about coping with loss…and hopefully they will be able to carry those skills forward into adulthood.
