Dottie Kissinger Bereavement Camp
Sponsored by Banner Hospice, the Dottie Kissinger Bereavement Camp is a free community program designed to help children cope with the loss of a loved one. For more information about the camp, please contact:
Cindy Darby, Banner Hospice Bereavement Coordinator at (480) 657-1167, or by e-mail.
The camp is held in the cool pines just outside Payson, Arizona. Offered twice a year; once in the spring and once in the fall, the camp is led by Banner Hospice staff and volunteers.
Children and parents participate in activities that inform, educate, and provide opportunities to talk about very difficult aspects of loss.
We have helped families who have experienced losses such as grandparents who died from an illness or sudden accidental deaths of parents or siblings.
The program is not limited to those associated with Banner Hospice, but is open to the entire community.
