The Bertolon Center for Grief & Healing, a program of Care Dimensions (formerly Hospice of the North Shore & Greater Boston), has developed a weekend day camp to support children and their families who have experienced the death of someone close to them. The camp offers a combination of child focused activities including arts and crafts, water activities and games. The camp also offers relaxation activities and workshops for adults. Parents or adult caregivers of campers will receive a comprehensive informational packet with suggested readings, common grief reactions of children, ideas on communicating more effectively and tips for helping children cope with grief. The entire family will have fun while learning new coping skills.
