Camper Information

Chameleon’s Journey is an overnight grief camp for children and teens (ages 7-17) who are coping with the death of a family member or other significant person in their life. It is based on a journey of discovery by a chameleon that lost a special friend.


At Chameleon’s Journey, children and teens quickly learn that they are not alone in their grief. In a safe and caring environment, trained counselors guide campers along a path to the development of coping skills. Campers learn that feelings which surface during the grief process are normal - though difficult.


In the midst of learning about the grief process, campers have fun, too, as they ride the zipline, canoe on the peaceful waters of Lake Wylie, play field games and get to know others with like experiences.


All Chameleon’s Journey camp counselors and volunteers are trained by the Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region professional staff. These staff members have an understanding of the grief process and are experienced in supporting children coping with loss.
