Camp Amanda the Panda

Connect with others that have experienced the death of a loved one

At Camp Amanda the Panda, children (Kindergarten and above), teens and adults find a place of comfort and support as they connect with others who have experienced the death of a loved one. Together, with the companionship of trained volunteer camp counselors, campers gather to honor, remember, learn, and grow in their grief journey. Campers are grouped with peers their own age and enjoy an overnight at the scenic Camp Wesley Woods in Indianola, Iowa.
