Every child grappling with the profound grief of losing a loved one to suicide deserves a sanctuary – a place where they can find understanding, express their emotions, and importantly, experience the joy of being a child. Camp Kita, located amidst the pristine beauty of Maine, is that haven.

A week-long retreat filled with traditional camp activities, from canoeing to archery, ensuring each camper has the balanced experience of both fun and healing.
Access to our tailored loss-oriented support, with daily therapeutic groups (Kita Group) specific to suicide loss survivors.
24/7 trauma support in our Kita Zone, led by trained crisis professionals.
Mentorship from adults with lived experiences, who guide and support the campers throughout their stay.
While the specific dates for the upcoming season are yet to be determined, our mission remains unwavering – to provide bereaved children a blend of therapeutic healing and the joy of a summer retreat.
