Camp Warm Hearts Family Grief Day Camp

Camp Warm Hearts Family Grief Day Camp

Saturday May 20, 2017 - Hospice of Helping Hands

 

Camp Warm Hearts will again be held as a free family day camp for families who have experienced the death of a loved one.  The activities at Camp will include:  educational workshops, memory crafts, family meals, outdoor summer activities, and a special memorial service to honor their loved one. 

The power of healing from a death lies in the family unit.  A child's most determining factor of how they will cope with loss is how their parent/guardian copes with loss.  Therefore, offering a family camp helps teach parents/guardians coping skills of their own and helps prepare them to better meet their child's grief-related needs following Camp.  

The camp will be conducted at Camp Timbers near Clear Lake, West Branch, Michigan and will begin at 8 a.m. and conclude at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, 2017. 

Grieving families need extra support and encouragement from their families, friends, school personnel, and church families. If your family has, or you know of a family that has experienced the death of a loved one, please share this information with them. 

The deadline to register a family for Camp Warm Hearts is Friday, April 28, 2017.  Space is limited, so families are encouraged to register early by contacting Hospice of Helping Hands at 800-992-6592.  We will walk you through the free registration process and get you ready for a rewarding and healing event.  (Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to participate)
