Healing and Encouragement After Loss
The loss of a loved one can be especially difficult for children.
Camp HEAL is a day camp sponsored by Hospice of Southwest Georgia and is free of charge to children ages 6–13 who are dealing with the death of a loved one.
This day camp allows children to share their experiences and form new friendships. Children also have the opportunity to learn more about grief while receiving bereavement support from trained professionals and hospice volunteers in a safe environment. One of the highlights of camp is the memorial service where campers present special tributes dedicated to their loved ones.
