Compass Regional Hospice - Camp New Dawn
Saturday, August 19, 2017
Camp New Dawn takes the essential ingredients of summer camp - fun, food and friendship - and adds activities that help children and teens express what it feels like to lose someone who they love.
Camp New Dawn is a 3-day, two-night retreat for children and teens who are grieving normally after the death of an important loved one. Campers learn healthy coping skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.
Camp New Dawn also includes a family retreat. Parents of campers arrive for an overnight session with other adults before they are joined by their children. During the second half of the family camp the adults and children play, talk and learn together. They take home experiences and skills that help them rely on one another to heal as they honor the memory of their departed loved ones.
