On the weekend of October 12 through 14, Crossroads Kids will be hosting a weekend camp in Excelsior Springs, for children and families in grief after the death of a loved one. The 3-day, 2-night grief camp provides children ages 6-12 and their families with a healing environment designed to facilitate communication and provide children with a safe place to experience, share, and understand their grief in order to begin the healing journey.

To provide the best healing environment for the children and their families, every Crossroads Kids camp is structured as follows:

• Every camp maintains a 1:2 ratio of staff to children to ensure ample supervision and support.

• All camp activities and therapeutic groups are overseen by credentialed, master's level social work and psychology staff.

Crossroads Kids, founded in 2015, is an initiative of Crossroads Hospice Charitable Foundation and is dedicated to honoring the validity of child and family grief by facilitating the healing process. Crossroads Kids has been instrumental in helping children and families across Missouri and Missouri achieve healing after the death of a loved one.
