Camp Widow® Australia
Camp Widow® Australia will take place in Brisbane at the Hotel Grand Chancellor from Friday 5 August to Sunday 7 August 2022.
Camp Widow® is an incredibly unique experience for widowed men and women, having been described as combination between a conference and a retreat. It focusses on providing practical tools, valuable resources and peer-based encouragement for rebuilding your life in the aftermath of the death of a spouse or partner - all in a positive, uplifting atmosphere.
Camp Widow® Australia is supported by social-based networking events on the Friday and Saturday evenings, Saturday and Sunday lunches and afternoon tea on Sunday. This provides an opportunity for attendees to form support connections in addition to the presentations and workshops included in the program.

Why we help
First Light was started by young widowed people, for young widowed people. When we all found ourselves facing the loss of our spouse we searched for help and support but found this was lacking.
So, we created the organisation that we wish existed when we needed it most in the hope that it would help those who would follow behind us.
Our vision is for a world where young widowed people live full and happy lives, while celebrating their love for their departed spouse in a community of acceptance and support.
