Camp Jinka



About Us

Camp Jinka is a free summer program for kids and teens whose lives have been impacted by loss. Children attending camp have a parent who is battling an illness or has passed away. This unique camp offers creative indoor and outdoor activities while encouraging expression and connection with others having a similar life experience.

This summer will be the inaugural pilot in Belfast, Maine after 12 successful years hosted in New Jersey. Our goal is to duplicate this magical program in Mid-coast Maine.

We've partnered with Kids Unplugged, an indoor play museum and gym.

July 11-14 Supports children who have a terminally ill or deceased parent from a brain tumor, cancer and other diseases

July 25-28 Support children whose parents have been incarcerated, hospitalized or deceased from opioids, mental health, violent crime, the military, an accident or suicide.
