DoveTales designed for children (ages 6-17) who are coping with the death of a loved one.

DoveTales is an educational, nurturing, and safe place for children to share their stories and to meet others who “get it.” Campers will have the opportunity to learn effective and practical skills for coping with their grief. There is no cost to attend this annual event.

The full day camp event will begin at 8:30 AM and conclude at 7 PM. Group activities include sharing stories, creating lots of crafts, playing games, and enjoying outdoor and nature activities. All meals are included. Parents/guardians are invited to attend a special family dinner to connect other families, learn about camp activities, and honor their loved ones. 

DoveTales Volunteer Training will be held Friday, September 13th, 2024

For more information, please contact the HWC Bereavement team at 301-791-6360 or email Maria Reed at

We are also looking for adult volunteers to assist with camp activities and serve as “big buddies” for the camp! All necessary training will be provided.
