About Mending Hearts Camps

Surrounded by a community of peers who have experienced a similar loss, campers explore their creativity through a variety of performing arts and community building activities.

Orpheum trained teaching artists, supported by healing counselors, facilitate activities that encourage community and collaboration while celebrating the unique talents of each individual camper, giving them creative space to express themselves, build self- confidence, and develop friendships that let them see they are not alone.

As part of the healing journey of the program, campers will practice a variety of coping skills, and have opportunities to process difficult emotions in one on one counseling sessions with professional healing counselors during camp.

Through sharing time with adults who have experienced losing a parent as a child, participants see that there is hope for their future. Following the sharing time experience, campers also have the opportunity to reflect in small groups with healing counselors.


“My father passed away unexpectedly when I was seven years old. As I grew, I realized it was my childhood involvement in the performing arts that gave me the tools to express myself, a group of supportive friends, and the self-confidence to achieve the success I have enjoyed in life. With Mending Hearts Camp, I am pleased the Orpheum can give other children who have experienced the devastating loss of a parent the same benefits of the performing arts that I had as a child.” — Brett Batterson, President & CEO
