COMMON GROUND GRIEF CENTER
Our program, Common Ground, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Manasquan, New Jersey. Our “home” is a beautiful and charming house that features rooms specifically designed to be utilized by the participants of our program. Each room offers a different modality for children and teens to express their feelings in age appropriate ways. These include our talking circle, music, art, sand-play, puppetry, gross motor activity and full scale “play” hospital room for children ages 6-18. As we believe in supporting the family as a whole, a concurrent adult support group meets at the same time for the caregiver of the child or teen who is participating in our program. We also offer training sessions to local agencies, organizations and schools in need of our expertise as well as educational materials about children and grief.

CAMP NO WORRIES
Camp No Worries is a summer camp created solely to give children with cancer and their siblings an opportunity to relax, enjoy themselves and forget about their worries for one week every summer. It’s a place that allows children facing a diagnosis of cancer to just be kids. It’s a place of happiness, friendship and new adventures. It’s a place of camaraderie and acceptance where everyone knows first–hand what it’s like to live with cancer. And, it’s a true summer camp experience in every sense of the word.
