Bereavement Camp Offers Kids Help with Loss
When children or teens and their families experience the death of a significant person in their life, they need help to deal with the strong emotions of grief.
Holy Family Hospice will sponsor a Kids’ Bereavement Camp on Friday July 31 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Old Stone Pavilion located at 7619 Memphis in Cleveland. The Camp is FREE for all children between the ages of 6 and 14 in need of bereavement support.
The mission of the bereavement camp is to facilitate the grieving process of children and teens who have suffered the death of a significant person while providing a safe and healing experience. Especially for those who have lost someone recently.
Children and teens are invited to participate in activities that inform, educate, and provide opportunities to talk and cope with the death of a significant person in their life.The camp is led by the Holy Family Hospice Bereavement Department and Social Workers and open to the entire community.
Registration is required by June 12, 2015 to Amanda Lehner at 440-545-7031 or Kellie Smiddie at 440-866-6549
