Below you will find the 2018 event schedule to give you an idea of what the Camp Widow® program offers! Please be aware that variations to the below program are possible, and that this schedule applies to Camp Widow® San Diego 2018 only.

Look for the Camp Widow® Camp Widow® Toronto 2018 information in October of 2018 and the Camp Widow® Tampa 2019 information in February of 2019. We’d love to see you at any of our fantastic locations!

**One word about the schedule: We realize that there are a lot of choices to make regarding how you spend your time at Camp Widow®. Attending every item listed below is not possible, and we provide you with a large variety of program choices on purpose. Our hope is that everyone will find something that speaks to them during their camp weekend, and that through the arc of your widowed experience you will continually discover something of value in the Camp Widow® program.**
