BALTIMORE — Violence can impact families and children and many times, kids don't know how to deal with the loss of a loved one.

Roberta's House is helping them out by creating an outdoor overnight grief camp.

Kids from ages 6 to 17 years old are spending the weekend at Northbay Adventure Camp.

"They're bringing pictures of their loved ones, they get a chance to introduce their loved ones to their new friends. They get a chance to really talk about what it felt like in order to experience death," said Veronica Land-Davis, Executive Director of Roberta's House. "They get a chance to understand what grief is what does it look like. So when they leave they're leaving with some tools to put in their toolkit in order to get through the through."

65 kids left this afternoon and will return on Sunday.
