Grief Support Group
The Grief Support Group for Survivors of Suicide Loss meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 7:00-8:30 PM at the Peter White Public Library in the Dandelion Cottage Room (217 N Front Street, Marquette, MI 49855). Please note this group is designed for adults.
Camp STAR is a grief camp designed for children ages 8-17 who have experienced the unfortunate death of a parent, friend, or loved one. It is sponsored by STAR Children’s Bereavement Services and is a weekend long camp filled with traditional, fun, camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support.
All camp activities are facilitated by caring, trained professionals, and volunteers. Each camper is assigned a camp buddy, who is a specially trained mentor that provides one-on-one companionship throughout the weekend. Camp Buddies are young adults ages 18 to 25.
