Camp Brave Hearts helps kids cope with loss of loved one

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys Hospice once again will conduct Camp Brave Hearts, a three-day camp for kids ages 6 to 17 who are dealing with the loss of a loved one.
The camp will take place Friday, Aug. 2 through Sunday, Aug. 4 at Camp Copneconic in Fenton.

The weekend combines traditional camping fun with special activities designed to teach kids how to cope with their loss and how to honor the memory of their loved one. Grief education, support from others at the camp, and friendship building are part of the experience.

Kids will check in on Friday evening when they begin specialized group activities to work through the grief recovery process.

The weekend includes camp activities - hiking, canoeing, swimming, arts and crafts, group sports and games. The group also will work on memory projects - pillows, bags, boxes and boats. On Saturday night, the kids will launch their handmade memory boats in a ceremony to say goodbye to those they have lost.

Staff from Genesys Hospice who specialize in grief counseling and support will work with the kids throughout the weekend to help them understand their feelings of loss, while honoring and cherishing the memories of those people special to them.

Each person expresses grief differently, and the Genesys team is there to help them through family issues, feelings of loneliness and stress management while cherishing the memory of those they have lost.

For details, call Genesys Hospice at 810-603-8638.
