Kids need lots of support after a loss, and they also need to have fun and just be kids. Support and fun are what Camp Forget-Me-Not is all about! Camp Forget-Me-Not will be facilitated once again this year by Alive Hospice grief counselors and volunteers. it is a summer day camp running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, June 21-23. There is a cost of $30 per participant, but need-based scholarships are available so that grieving children may benefit regardless of ability to pay. Snacks and lunch are included.
Activities will include small and large group activities utilizing a variety of creative projects to help the kids learn about grief and process what they're feeling in healthy, positive ways. Additionally, there will be other camp activities like a water games day, petting zoo, nature hikes and more. Camp Forget-Me-Not will conclude with a butterfly release, allowing each child to release a butterfly to remember the loved ones they've lost -- but who remain part of them still.
