Grief Camp for Youth: Opening Session
July 20, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10:15 am
Join us for a week of healing and connection! Grief Camp 2020 will focus on supporting youth who are grieving the death of a loved one as well as their caregivers. Grief Camp takes place 7/20-7/24 and all activities begin at 10am and last for 30-60mins. Activities include crafting, story hour, discussion, and circus arts. Please join us for some or all of our activities and offerings!
Throughout the week, we are offering individual, private consultation sessions with parents, guardians and caregivers of children and teens. These sessions will focus on the specific situation of the child and family and how to best support your child through the grieving process, and can be scheduled after registration.
Grief Camp is presented by Hospicare & Palliative Care Services in collaboration with local practitioners. Camp is free and open to all. Classes and webinars will be on Zoom. Links will be provided upon registration, which is required. For more information or to register call 607-272-0212 or email our bereavement staff.
