We were so looking forward to welcoming back all of you that we have shared past summers with and getting to know all of you who were going to be with us for the first time this year.

We are excited to host year 7 of FDL Circle Week – a week long traditional overnight camp for bereaved girls.
At Fleur de Lis Camp, we know the value of overnight camp. We know the value of play and engaging in healthy activities such as swimming, kayaking, canoeing, tennis, archery, arts and crafts, softball, basketball, and singing around the campfire. At Circle Week we know the value of helping children talk about the losses in their lives. Fleur de Lis’ Circle Week brings these together, so our campers can have summer days of childhood fun, meaning, and bonding.
Our program integrates traditional overnight camp activities with the opportunity to do “grief work” in a safe and caring setting, under the guidance of professional bereavement staff, surrounded by supportive peers. Campers are able to share their stories and remember the parent who has died.
The program is entirely free to campers, and transportation is provided from three locations currently: Worcester, MA, Lowell, MA, and Keene, NH.
