Male Volunteers Needed – Camp STAR

Camp STAR is a bereavement camp for children ages 8-17 that have experienced the death of a loved one. It is a free weekend-long camp held at Bay Cliff Health Camp in Big Bay, MI. There are traditional camp activities along with grief support and education for children. Camp will be August 10th – 13th. 

We have two young boys that we need to pair with a volunteer buddy for them to attend camp.
