Children and Teens

Welcome! We are excited to bring virtual events to children and teenagers ages 6 – 17 years facing any serious medical condition and their family members. These are LIVE events, hosted by a member of our Beads of Courage Program Team and requires registration to receive the Zoom link and session materials.

Virtual Bead Strong:

The Beads of Courage® Bead Strong Program was created to provide an experience in mindfulness. Mindfulness is achieved when an individual is able to calmly focus, be aware and accept one’s own thoughts and feelings. Each Bead Strong activity uses several different tools including mantras, art, breathwork and beads.

All of our current sessions are full. Please fill out the form below to be placed on the waitlist.

Virtual Sibling Summer Camp:

Beads of Courage is excited to host our first Virtual Sibling Summer Camp! Camp will be held virtually daily, July 26-28 from 1-2 ET. We would like to invite siblings ages 6-12 to join us for this fun week of activities. As this camp is virtual, please plan to have a responsible caregiver avaliable to assist children as needed throughout the sessions. Sessions will be hosted by Lindsie Padden, Beads of Courage Program Manager and Certified Child Life Specialist.

Each day will have a different space theme to help support your children and their important role as a sibling! We will engage in fun activities, explore feelings, practice coping skills and more. Registration is required.
