A very special project of Lourdes
Hospice and Broome Oncology
Camp Hope for Kids is a day camp for children and teens who have
experienced the loss of an immediate family member such as: a
parent, guardian, grandparent, or sibling. Children ages 6-14
are welcome to participate in this specialized day camp.
The camp is run by professional social workers, teachers and
nurses who have experience working with children and grief and
loss. They will be able to grieve openly and learn how to
deal with their emotions and realize that there are other children
that are experiencing similar loss.
The activities offered in the camp
provide opportunities for learning, healthy grieving and hopeful
living. The camp will encourage fun and play, while engaging
the children in therapeutic activities such as memory
books. Campers will also participate in Healing
Circles, a support group that gives opportunities for each child
and teen to share their stories, get to know each other and learn
ways of coping. Our caring staff offers guidance and
Camp Hope is hosted by Camp Sertoma, Johnson Road, Kirkwood,
- and More...
Enrollment for this program is limited to 40 children and is on
a first come first serve basis. Once you call or email to enroll,
we will call you back and send you an enrollment packet to fill
out. Registration and a slot at the camp is not reserved
until the enrollment packet has been completed and returned.
Cost is $10 per child for the entire camp
