In the past, CareFirst offered an annual grief camp for local children who have experienced a recent loss. As we recognize that children have varying interests, in 2016 we are adapting this traditional camp into two special, unique events!
WINTER EXPRESSIONS: GRIEF, KIDS, AND ART: On Saturday, March 12th, from 9:00 am - 1:30 pm, children ages 6-17 are invited to attend this artistic, creative workshop in collaboration with Lynn Winters Studio at CareFirst! This workshop is specifically designed for children and teens who have recently lost a loved one. This special day will put a creative spin on the grieving process focusing on peer support, stress reduction and creative expression of feelings. Registration is required, $10 per child. Scholarships are available.
SUMMER SURVIVAL: GRIEF, KIDS, AND GAMES: On Saturday, July 16th, from 9:00 am - 1:30 pm, children ages 6-17 are invited to attend this hands on, physical, interactive workshop at CareFirst in collaboration with The First Tee program! This "field day" is specifically designed for youth who have recently lost a loved one. This special day puts a physical spin on the grieving process by providing games and activities to help children understand their grief, while developing positive coping skills and positive physical fitness patterns. Registration is required, $10 per child. Scholarships are available.
