Children’s Grief Day Camp
June 22 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
One event on June 22, 2019 at 9:00 am
Our grief day camp programs are for children ages 6 to 18 who are grieving a significant loss by death. Designed by our team of professional counselors and led by staff and trained volunteers, these programs help children and teens learn to navigate life without their loved one. A safe space is provided for participants to share memories, express difficult feelings and try new activities surrounded by others who have also experienced loss and grief.
The Children’s Grief Day Camp for ages 6 to 13 will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. June 21 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 22 on the Hospice of the Chesapeake’s John & Cathy Belcher Campus at 90 Ritchie Highway in Pasadena. Participants will get to know each other on Friday night, then return the next day to explore their grief, learn tools to manage it and have a lot of fun. Through art, play, conversations and support, children will learn new ways to cope with the difficult task of grieving, while learning they are not alone. The cost is $50.
All meals, snacks and activities are included in cost to attend. There are scholarships available for those in need. Space is limited. Registration is required and can be completed by calling 888-501-7077 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
