Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County invites children who have lost a loved one to attend Camp Courageous.
Camp Courageous has been available to grieving youngsters in Miami County for twenty-two years. Camp Courageous is offered free of charge to Miami County children entering grades K-12.
Designed to help kids who have lost loved ones, Camp Courageous is similar to other traditional summer camps, offering an array of active outdoor activities, bringing children and teens together to share memories, play, sing, learn and laugh. But Camp Courageous also brings together children who share an experience of loss and offers them the opportunity to grieve, memorialize their loved ones and support each other. Camp Courageous is a safe place for feelings to be expressed and for campers to gain life-long tools for coping with grief.
Camp is open to any child/teen in the community who has experienced the death of a loved one, regardless of whether Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County services have been used.
