    Camp Hands of Hope
    A weekend long bereavement camp for youth and their loved ones who have experienced the loss of a loved one in the past three years. This camp is hosted by the Hospice & Palliative Care Foundation. Due to COVID-19, they have decided to host the spring camp this year in an ONLINE ONLY format. The upcoming camp will take place May 14 & 15, 2021, and will involve a mix of independent family activities and live sessions facilitated by clinical bereavement professionals. They would like to extend our camp resources to any students, friends, or family you may have that can potentially benefit from the camp.
    Camp is open to youth ages 5-18 and their caregivers who have experienced the loss of a loved one in the past three years (must have at least one adult attend with the camper). They will mail materials in advance including grief journals, activity supplies, and t-shirts. The ask that the family pay a $20 administrative fee (per family) to help offset the administrative time of processing applications, HOWEVER if that fee is a financial hardship, they can apply for an application fee waiver after their applications have been accepted and confirmed.
    REGISTRATION WILL OPEN TUESDAY, APRIL 13th online at www.camphandsofhope.org. Registration will remain open until spaces are filled. There are also additional resources on their website for grieving children, families, and professionals that work with them.
