Star Bear and Star Bound Family Camps make a significant, positive difference in the lives of children and families. Please help us to continue this much-needed service.
Sadly, every day 9 children are bereaved of a parent in South Australia. The loss of a parent can be deeply painful, particularly since they play such a key role in shaping our lives.
In 2002 camp mascot Star Bear had a dream to support grieving children.
Since then AnglicareSA’s free Star Bear and Star Bound camps have supported close to 1,000 grieving children and young people through the debilitating fear and loss they experience after losing a sibling, parent or other significant person in their lives.
Grief can be very isolating, even within the closest families. Parents and carers often tell us they don’t know how to deal with their own grief let alone how to help their children grieve.
That’s why we have decided to expand our service to now offer Star Bound Family Camps.
These camps see families come to camp together and learn as individuals and as a family group how to manage their own grief and how to help each other.
Please make a tax deductible donation to our Spring Appeal & help us support grieving children and their families.
