Camp Spero is a place of healing for children, ages 7 to 17.
Based on the Latin phrase, Dum Spiro Spero, “While I breathe, I hope,” Camp Spero campers honor and memorialize their loved ones while making friends with others who are facing similar circumstances. This summer weekend experience helps children increase their feelings of hopefulness, enhance their self-esteem, and learn they are not alone. Hosted by The Elizabeth Hospice, this grief camp is offered free of charge and all grieving children in the community are welcome
Registration for Camp Spero 2023 opens Spring 2023. Campers and volunteers are invited to submit an Interest Form now.

“Sometimes I feel like my friends don’t understand what I’ve been through or what I’m going through. But at Camp Spero everyone understands.”

“Camp Spero is a great place to grieve. You learn more coping skills. You have beautiful ceremonies. You do ziplining. It’s just wonderful!”
