Weekend Retreat For Grieving Children, Adults and Families

Camp Carousel is a weekend retreat for children, teens, and adults who are grieving due to the death of a family member or other loved one. The camp offers a unique blend of creative group work and recreational activities designed to promote opportunities to express emotions and learn healthy coping techniques with others who have experienced similar losses. Recreational activities include arts and crafts, games, hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, horseback riding, and organized sports. Each summer, the Grief Center sponsors Camp Carousel. Special sessions on parenting children and teens are available. These sessions help parents or guardians understand their child’s grieving process. In addition, other small group sessions provide the adults opportunities to focus on their own grief process. By attending Camp, the family learns about the grief process and ways to cope with the many changes in their lives. Camp Carousel is scheduled for June 7-9, 2002. The age of campers are 5 years old -adult. The cost is $75.00 per child, and $25.00 for an adult or guardian. There are scholarships available that pay 2/3 of the cost of camp.
