Connecticut, USA, February 27, 2023 – Experience Camps, a non-profit organization that transforms the lives of grieving children through summer camp programs and innovative year-round initiatives, is proud to announce the largest virtual experience in its history.
Named Grief Quest, this innovative educational realm is available on the Roblox gaming platform and has already been enjoyed over 100,000 times.
Grief Quest offers users a safe place to learn and reflect on grief by participating in a digital treasure hunt through a colorful summer camp-inspired fantasy world.
The experience’s three levels, created in collaboration with global metaverse studio Dubit, take players through settings such as outer space and rainbow fields.
For players looking for a quieter environment, the world offers a “Reflection Zone” where players can support others and light a candle in memory of loved ones.
Roblox, the popular gaming platform where Grief Quest can be experienced, currently has 58.8 million daily active users.
Jesse Moss, Director of Marketing at Experience Camps, said:
“As a society, we have difficulty in addressing grief and having open conversations about it. Our hope is that this space will offer kids and teens impactful ways to help the grieving people in their lives.” By hosting the experience on Roblox, we can not only reach kids where they are but also use the game for social-emotional learning. We know that players will walk away with a greater ability to be smarter about grief.”
Stephanie Whitley, Dubit’s Chief of Staff, said:
“We take great pride in our contribution to creating a safe and nurturing atmosphere where children can freely express and gain knowledge about grief. Virtual spaces allow us to explore through play, sometimes with more freedom than in the ‘real’ world. The work Experience Camps does is invaluable and we are honored to play a small part in it.”
Experience Camps’ Roblox experience is the second game world created by the non-profit organization. Last summer, the organization launched ‘ExperienceCraft‘: a moderated Minecraft server for children ages 7-14.
