Registration open for Camp Good Grief and Camp Journey

ALBANY, Ga. – The loss of a loved one can be difficult for children and teens. Albany Community Hospice is hosting Camp Good Grief and Camp Journey for children and teens who have experienced the death of a loved one. Camp Good Grief is geared toward children in kindergarten through 5th grade and Journey is for grades 6 -12. Planned activities allow participants to share, talk and form new friendships.

This year, the camp will take place over three days. On Wednesday, June 19, Camp Good Grief will kick off with participants who have completed grades K-2. On Friday, June 21, Camp Good Grief will continue for those who have completed grades 3-5. Camp Journey will take place on Wednesday, June 26, for those who have completed grade 6-12. The one-day camps take place from 1-5 p.m. at Willson Hospice House and are free.

Camp participants engage in activities and small group sessions to help them learn about and discuss grief in a safe, relaxed environment with their peers. Campers are assisted by experienced, trained counselors, who are prepared to deal with bereavement issues.

The camps are sponsored by Phoebe Foundation’s annual Lopez Hospice Golf Classic.
