When a loved one dies, the whole family grieves and all members are affected. Recognizing the need for both children and the adults in their life to gain support in their grieving process, Community Hospice & Palliative Care hosts Healing Powers Day Camp. This day camp invites children and their parents or guardians to connect with other grieving families to learn they are not alone, share their stories, participate in healing rituals, and have a fun camp experience.
Who Could Benefit from this Camp?
After a death, it is not uncommon for children and teens to withdraw socially, seek attention through acting out, or struggle more at school with attention and focus. If you know a child or teen whose family has been impacted by the death of a loved one, Healing Powers Day Camp can be an opportunity for connection, learning, and healing.
• Children and teens ages 6 years and up who have experienced a death at least three months prior to date of camp
• Each camper attending should be accompanied by a parent or guardian and attend day camp with participating campers. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, stepfamilies, and single parents are all welcome.
• Pre-camp phone assessments are necessary for all families
• Loved one did NOT have to be in the care of Community Hospice & Palliative Care
