Program Director Mark Smith joined Action News 5′s Andrew Douglas at the digital desk to talk about the of the special coping skills kids will learn during the 3-day camp.

“As a whole and particularly in our culture, we still find the concept of grief intimidating and difficult to talk about,” said Mark Smith, program director of Camp BraveHearts. “Adults easily struggle to help younger minds and hearts understand how to navigate such big feelings. We feel honored to provide a space where kids can safely and sensitively release some of the pressure that can build up after a loss.”
