New Roblox World Focuses On Grief Education

Experience Camps partners Dubit to create a pioneering educational world

Experience Camps – a nonprofit that transforms the lives of grieving children through summer camp programs and innovative, year-round initiatives, has launched its biggest virtual experience, Grief Quest. The experience is a pioneering educational world on Roblox and has so far been enjoyed more than 100,000 times. 

Grief Quest provides users with a safe place to learn about and reflect on grief by engaging in a digital scavenger hunt across a colourful, summer camp-inspired fantasy world. The experience’s three levels, created in partnership with global metaverse studio Dubit, take players through settings such as outer space and rainbow fields. For players who are seeking a quieter setting, the world offers a ‘Reflection Zone’ where players can support others and light a candle in memory of loved ones.

Experience Camps Senior Marketing Manager Jesse Moss said, “As a society, we’re really not good at talking about grief. Our hope is that this space gives kids and teens impactful ways to show up for grieving people in their life. By housing the experience on Roblox, we’re able to not only reach kids where they are, but also use play for social emotional learning. We know that players will leave with an increased ability to be more grief-smart.” 

Dubit Chief of Staff Stephanie Whitley said, “We’re immensely proud to have contributed to this safe and nurturing environment within which children can express and learn about grief. Virtual spaces empower us to explore through play – sometimes with more freedom than we can in the ‘real’ world. The work Experience Camps does is invaluable and we’re honoured to play a small part in it.”

Experience Camps’ Roblox experience is the second gaming world created by the nonprofit. Last summer, the organisation launched ExperienceCraft, a moderated Minecraft server for 7-14-year-olds.
