Annie's Hope Summer Camp

Annie’s Hope – The Center for Grieving Kids is a St. Louis-based nonprofit whose mission is to offer comprehensive support services to children, teens and their families who are grieving a death. Every year we host two overnight camps for grieving kids, Camp Courage & Camp Courage – Teens (formerly known as Camp Erin – St. Louis). Volunteers are essential to the success of the Camps. We are looking for energetic, kid-loving volunteers who are 18 years-old or older to support the 175 bereaved kids who come to camp every year. No experience as a social worker/counselor or major in a social service profession is required. Some of our greatest counselors have represented the nursing, education, child life, outdoor education, physical education, and business disciplines. No matter the course of study, a volunteer experience with Camp Courage and/or Camp Courage – Teens is sure to inform a student’s education and professional work.

Camp Courage volunteers are needed Saturday, June 1st – Friday, June 7th. This camp supports kids ages 6 – 11 years-old.

Camp Courage – Teens volunteers are needed Saturday, June 8th – Friday, June 14th. This camp supports youth ages 12 – 18 years-old.

These attachments and more information is available at Every accepted volunteer means three kids are off the waiting list – no amount of sharing is too much.
