2018 Camp Celebrate Hope

HospiceCare of the Piedmont will host its 23rd annual children’s grief camp, Camp Celebrate Hope.  It will be held May 5-6, 2018 at Camp Fellowship on Lake Greenwood.  Camp Celebrate Hope is open to children ages 6-14 who have experienced the death of a family member or a significant person in their lives.  The overnight camp will begin early on Saturday morning and end midday on Sunday.

 

At Camp Celebrate Hope, participants learn about their grief and are encouraged to speak openly about issues of death and their grieving experience within a group of children their own age.  Children learn new skills to help them build confidence and hope for the future.  Together they create friendships and support that allow them to identify and express their feelings in a safe and caring environment.  They also get the chance to participate in fun and organized activities. The staff and volunteers working at Camp Celebrate Hope are specially trained to work with grieving children.

 

There is no charge to attend this camp but space is limited.  The deadline for returning completed applications is April 20th, 2018.
