Chesapeake Life Center has announced the remaining two locations for its summer grief programs for children ages 6 to 11.
- Summer Grief Art Workshop is a creative program designed to help younger children use art to gain support, express their feelings, and make their grief visible through arts and crafts. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 26 at Artsy Partsy, Suite 302 in the Patriot Plaza at 8055 Ritchie Highway, Pasadena, Maryland.
- Rhythm and Grieve will be held from 10 to 4 p.m. July 17 at Watkins Park, 301 Watkins Park Drive, Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Like other forms of art, music allows children to express their grief constructively in non-verbal ways. In this workshop kids will make their own instruments to honor their loved ones, creatively express their emotions, and connect with others in the process. Get ready for grief out loud!
- The organization had previously announced that Adventures in Grief will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 15 at Terrapin Adventures at Historic Savage Mill at 8600 Foundry St., in Savage, Maryland. Grief for kids can be a wild journey, sometimes feeling like a safari or climbing up a mountain. Come and explore this grief adventure, how it looks and feels different for everyone, in a very physical way. Space may still be available for this event.
Just pick the one that suits your child’s needs best. As these will be held in person, space is limited which means a child can only attend one of the programs. The Chesapeake Life Center team is confident it can offer a safe experience for all participants, and will take all the necessary precautions, following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control.
The cost for each program is $40, and includes snacks, meals, activities and a T-Shirt. Scholarships are available; inquire upon registering. Call 888-501-7077 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, visit www.chesapeakelifecenter.org for ongoing children’s programs.
