Camp Chimaqua For Grieving Children
Apr 01, 2019 01:09AM
Camp Chimaqua, an overnight weekend camp for grieving children ages 6 to 12, will be held from May 31 to June 2, at Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center, in Lebanon. A trained adult buddy is paired with each child for companionship, support and supervision throughout the weekend. The experience allows campers to realize they are not grieving alone, and to understand that their feelings are normal as they get to know others who have also lost a loved one.
Donations from the community help keep the cost of the camp more affordable.
Cost: $25 per child; financial assistance available. Applications must be received by May 10. Location: 87 Old Mine Rd., Lebanon. For more information and to request an application, call the Pathways Center at 717-391-2413 or 800-924-7610 or visit Tinyurl.com/Camp-Chimaq
