Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County invites children who have lost a loved one to attend a day camp.
The camp is offered free of charge to children and teens in the Miami County region who are entering grades K-12. Designed to help kids who have lost loved ones, the camp 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 it 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. This grief camp is a safe place for feelings to be expressed and for campers to gain life-long tools for coping with grief.
The day camp is open to any child or teen in the Miami County region who has experienced the death of a loved one, regardless of whether Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County services have been used.
