Kids Bereavement Camp
The Helping Children Grow through Grief Support Group is sponsoring an all day bereavement camp for children ages 5-18 that have experienced a death of a sibling or parent. The day will be filled with activities to help your child(ren) learn special ways to share and work through their grief. Joining sadness with acceptance, love, laughter, and fun can be very helpful in supporting children’s adjustment to the loss of a loved one.
Please find a letter, application, directions and a schedule of the day’s activities below. In order for us to plan accordingly, please return the application as soon as possible to:
John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital
Attn: Child Life Department
818 Ellicott Street
Buffalo, NY 14203
The deadline for applications is Tuesday, July 9, 2019
Camp is being held on Tuesday, July 16, 2019
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided and there is no cost for the camp!
At the end of the day, we ask that parents or guardians join us for a memorial and picnic.
We will provide hot dogs and hamburgers and ask that you bring a side dish to pass.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Tara Young at 323-1520.
Thank you and we look forward to a special day of sharing!
