HopeWest Kids joins us to discuss their upcoming summer camp, geared towards kids in 3rd through 8th grades that have experienced a recent loss. The camp, “Camp Good Grief”, takes kids away for a retreat with paired up “buddies” and activities made to help kids cope with their grief.
According to HopeWest:
Camp Good Grief is a summer camp for children, entering third through eighth grades, who have lost a loved one. The camp provides a weekend of hope, healing, and support for nearly 70 children across western Colorado.
The weekend summer camp will take place from July 19 through 21 at Camp Cedaredge. Kids are supported by volunteers referred to as “buddies,” and campers are guided through activities to explore their grief in a safe, compassionate environment.
Children and teens will work in age-specific groups allowing participants to connect with peers facing similar experiences. Visual examples of projects, activities, and exercises conducted at camp help to explain the significance or lesson objective.
Registration is open until July 14. The cost to attend camp is only $35 per participant, scholarships are available. For more information, please call (970) 245-5377 or visit HopeWestCO.org/camp-good-grief-form-2019
