Below you will find the 2019 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® Tampa 2019 only.

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

*Camp Widow® has a brand new schedule which applies research being done at the Soaring Spirits Resilience Center to our camp programming. We are excited to share our new programming with our 2019 campers. Please be sure to watch the video that will be included in your workshop selection email to better understand our new track system. As always our goal is to provide the best possible resources for widowed men and women within the safe space created by our incredible community.
