Hickory – After a loved one dies, children grieve very differently than adults. They often struggle to put their sadness into words. How do you reassure them grief is normal and that there are other children like them who also grieve?
Carolina Caring and Rising Hope Farms in Claremont have teamed up once again to offer Brighter Days Children’s Camp. During the memorable one-day camp experience, kids interact with other children who have also lost someone close to them.
The day is filled with times to share their memories and feelings in age-appropriate groups, play fun games, fish, and make crafts. The serene camp location also provides an opportunity to interact with one of the horses at the farm.
A camp for young people ages 13 – 19 will be held Thursday, July 30, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The deadline for registration is July 23.
Another camp for children ages 5 – 12 will be held Friday, August 7, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The deadline for registration is July 31.
Measures are in place to protect the health of the campers, staff and volunteers.
Please call early as spaces are limited.
