Carilion Clinic Hospice, in partnership with Family Service of Roanoke Valley,
is pleased to announce Camp Treehouse.
Dates: October 19, 2013 Cost: FREE
Camp Treehouse is still accepting families who have experienced a loss for the free 2013 day camp session.
Camp Treehouse is a camp experience for families with children ages 4-16 who have lost a loved one. The camp provides a caring, safe environment where children are free to explore their feelings and concerns. Children learn that grief is not a process of forgetting, but remembering with less pain. All child campers are required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the weekend. Adult campers will also participate in group sessions designed to better understand a child’s grieving process and how they can best support their child’s needs.
Camp Treehouse provides an opportunity for kids to meet other children their own age who know what it’s like to lose a loved one. Campers will share memories, explore feelings, and remember loved ones through creative and recreational activities. Activities will include art, crafts, music, games, hiking and team-building activities.
Camp Treehouse grief counselors and volunteers are specially trained to assist those who have lost a loved one. Many have experienced similar losses in their own lives.
Camp Treehouse will utilize the facilities at the W.E. Skelton 4-H Educational Conference Center located at Smith Mountain Lake. The Center is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains and covers 120 beautiful acres. Join us for a memorable, therapeutic and enjoyable day at Camp Treehouse.
