Camp HEAL

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.

Purpose

This day camp allows children to share their experiences and form new friendships.

One of the highlights of camp is the memorial service where campers present special tributes dedicated to their loved ones.
