2017 May VA Camp
Westview on the James
This three day program is a strength-based, child-focused model, which includes age-based support groups facilitated by trained grief specialists. The program will facilitate icebreakers, confidence-building activities and other activities designed to facilitate trust, expression, and interaction among them.
To be eligible for this camp, the child must be between the ages of 7-17(18 if still in high school), and experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver.
Grief evolves with each developmental stage a child reaches, so learning to manage grief in a healthy way is important at every age. Whether the child’s loss was ten years or three months ago, encourage them to attend - you may have an opportunity to change the course of their life.
