TAPS hosts and participates in events across the country to provide support to all who are grieving the loss of a loved one who has died while in military service. Through our national and regional seminars and good grief camps, retreats, special presentations and fundraising events, TAPS is able to provide hope and healing. Our special presentations offer survivors, caregivers, military personnel, supporters and friends the opportunity to learn more about military grief and learn about the mission of TAPS.
TAPS takes pride in being able to continue its mission of compassionate care and comfort to all survivors; regardless of relationship, circumstance or geographic location of the death. Whether a survivor, caregiver, supporter, friend or someone who is interested in learning more about TAPS, we invite you to review our calendar and Press Room for an event near you!
Letters from TAPS: From the Youth Program DirectorBy Heather Campagna, TAPS Youth Program Director
TAPS Youth Programs had a wonderful summer this year! We had our largest ever National Good Grief Camp, several Regional Good Grief Camps including our two day event at Fort Hood, and four overnight Camp Erin/TAPS Grief Camps. For those who have brought your child to a Good Grief Camp in the past, thank you for sharing your child with us!
