Camp TDP

The Dinner Party is moving beyond the table and hosting our first ever Camp TDP.

Any Dinner Partier — whether they’re currently connect to a table, have “graduated” from a table but want to stay connected to the TDP community, or live in an isolated location (from rural Idaho to the Philippines) where there are no Dinner Party tables, will be invited to spend 3 days reflecting on their loss and life after, connecting with others who “get it,” swimming/relaxing/being a child again, meeting the TDP HQ staff, and more!

  • POC in TDP Meet + Greet

  • LGBTQ+ in TDP Meet + Greet

  • “Becoming a parent after losing a parent” Meet + Greet…and much more!

When: Friday, Sept. 27th - Sunday, Sept. 29th, 2019 (programming will start ~ 6 PM on Friday and end on Sunday by 12 PM CST, leaving plenty of time for folks to make it back home for the first night of Rosh Hashanah)
