Camp Grin Again
July 12, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until July 13, 2018
Camp Grin Again is a week-long half-day camp for children kindergarten – 8th grade who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Campers receive support through age appropriate groups and participate in fun activities such as games, sports, art, music, and much more.
Camp Grin Again’s curriculum is based on the following principles:
• ACCEPTANCE of the expression and experience of a wide range of emotions in a safe environment
• VALIDATION of the unique quality of individual grief
• GUIDANCE through the painful days of mourning and adaptation of family change
• CREATION of skills and abilities that effectively serve participants throughout life
Camp Grin Again, as with all of our support groups, is free to the public and is offered to children grieving ANY type of death – not just families who have used hospice services. The death does not have to be recent, nor does the child need to be presenting difficulties.
The deadline to register is July 2nd and families may enroll by contacting Hospice of Wichita Falls or visiting www.howf.org/camp-grin-2018
