Registration for the Alive Teen Retreat will continue through Oct. 10.

There is a cost of $50 per participant, and financial assistance is available based on need. To register, call 615-346-8680.
The Alive Teen Retreat, a program of Alive Hospice, will bring together grieving adolescents, counselors and volunteers for a three days and two nights. They'll make new friends as they participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities that will teach them about the grieving process and coping with loss. It's also lots of fun!
