Camp Caterpillar is a mini camp for children ages 7-11 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or other family member. Camp will be held at the Children's Bereavement Center – Rio Grande Valley where we believe every grieving child is on a journey. Camp Caterpillar is offered by the Children’s Bereavement Center – RGV at no cost to families.

Camp will be held at the Children’s Bereavement Center at 2302 S. 77 Sunshine Strip, Ste. 202 Harlingen, TX 78550, on March 11 & 12, 2019.

Application Process:

Print the Application and Parent Information Sheet and deliver to parents/guardians of potential campers. The Parent Information Sheet is for the parent/guardian to keep when they turn the completed application in to you. You can communicate with us if you have questions, and let us know when you have the completed applications. Applications may be faxed to 956-734-5335. Please do not send applications by email, because they may contain confidential information. Once the application is received by CBC-RGV, camp staff will contact parents to conduct a phone interview to determine if camp is the best fit for the child. We will offer alternative services if they are deemed more appropriate. Parent/guardians and campers must attend a mandatory informational meeting at the Children’s Bereavement Center – RGV on Friday, March 8, 2019 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. as the final step before camp. Families will need to provide transportation to this meeting.

For questions or additional information, contact us at 956-368-4065.
