Our Mission

Bereavement support is integral to Calvary’s core mission of compassion and non-abandonment.

In the New York metropolitan area, the Hospital has established itself as a resource for grieving families.

Our bereavement support programs for children and teens are open to all whose loved one was cared for at Calvary or our home hospice. Groups and camp are also open to children in the community, and in fact, most of the participants come from the larger community. Through the groups and camp, children and teens honor their deceased loved ones and learn to live life fully.

Established in 1997, Calvary’s Camp Compass® represents a significant commitment from all levels of the Hospital.
We also hire a number of teachers and guidance counselors from area schools, to accommodate the record number of campers who attend.
