Episode 10: Camp Hope, grief camp for kids
On this episode of Real People, Real Hope we introduce you to Wellspring's Camp Hope - a free grief camp for kids supported 100% from generous donors.
The grieving process is hard enough as an adult, but imagine what it’s like for a 12-year-old who’s just lost his mom to cancer. Knowing what to say and do – or feel – is so hard. It may seem almost easier to feel lost and alone.
But that’s not healthy for anyone. That’s when Camp Hope steps in.
Camp Hope is a three-day camp designed to help children and teenagers, ages 6-17, learn how to grieve. Camp Hope provides a safe place for children and teens to interact with peers who have experienced similar losses. Campers can express their feelings of grief, learn coping skills and most importantly, begin a healthy healing process.
