Support for Grieving Children
Hospice & Community Care will host Camp Chimaqua, an overnight weekend camp for grieving children ages 6 to 12, held May 29-31. A trained adult buddy is paired with each child for companionship, support and supervision throughout the weekend. This 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.
Cost: $25/child. Financial assistance is available. For more information or to request an application packet, call the Pathways Center for Grief & Loss at 717- 391-2413 or 800-924-7610. Children meet with a counselor to determine if camp best meets their needs. Applications must be received by May 1. Registration fees are nonrefundable after May 22.
