ALBANY, Ga. – The loss of a loved one can be difficult for children and teens.

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.
