This year, with the uncertainty about guidelines and restrictions on large gatherings, PYS may have to create a virtual Derby in place of the live event.
A free three-day summer bereavement camp for children who have lost a loved one and are struggling with that loss.
Camp 2021 will be held June 28–30 from 12:00–5:30 p.m. at Nazareth College
Grief is difficult for everyone. It can be especially confusing for children who do not have the life experiences and resources adults draw on during difficult times. Camp helps fill that gap.
Our camp promotes understanding, acceptance, healing and hope through a comprehensive program of therapeutic activities as well as plenty of fun. It is staffed by credentialed professionals and trained volunteers.

The 7 Cs: Essential Building Blocks of Resilience
Preparing children and teens to THRIVE through both good and challenging times.
Young people live up or down to expectations we set for them. They need adults who believe in them unconditionally and hold them to the high expectations of being compassionate, generous, and creative.
