Summer Children’s Programs: Adventures in Grief

May 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

support preteen family

Chesapeake Life Center will offer three different Saturdays of summer grief programs for children ages 6 to 11. 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.

  • Adventures in Grief will take place 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.
  • 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 at a location yet to be determined in Anne Arundel County. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 26.
  • Rhythm and Grieve will be held from 10 to 4 p.m. July 17 at a Prince George’s County location that is yet to be determined. 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 as a way to honor their loved ones, creatively express their emotions, and connect with others in the process. Get ready for grief out loud!

As these events have limited participation, 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 griefinfo@chesapeakelifecenter.org. Also, visit www.chesapeakelifecenter.org for ongoing children’s programs.
