Mount Evans Hospice will offer two sessions of Camp Comfort in summer 2017
Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice has announced dates for its two 2017 Camp Comfort sessions: June 16-18 and July 14-16. This award-winning bereavement camp, located in the Rocky Mountains just west of Denver, is a way for children ages 6 to 12 to explore their feelings of grief and share memories of their loved ones. More than 1,400 children have attended Camp Comfort since its establishment in 1995.
During this extraordinary weekend led by trained counselors and bereavement professionals, children learn ways to cope with their grief through workshops. A volunteer “buddy” system (with no more than two children to one adult) ensures that children receive plenty of personal, one-on-one attention. And, while children are encouraged to share memories and express their grief, Camp Comfort offers fun, too. The daily itinerary includes plenty of opportunities for recreation including swimming, horseback riding, arts and crafts, fishing, and hiking.
The total cost to attend Camp Comfort, including all workshops, recreation, meals, snacks, and overnight accommodations, is $150. Scholarships are available based on financial need.
