Hope HealthCare Services, dedicated to comfort and support for individuals and families facing life-limiting illness, offers assistance to youngsters coping with the loss of a loved one through its upcoming Rainbow Trails Camp program.
Scheduled Friday, Oct. 17 to Sunday, Oct. 19 at Riverside Retreat in LaBelle, the free program, available to all children ages 6-16, provides an understanding of the grief process, skills to cope with grief and loss, and an opportunity to memorialize and say goodbye to loved ones.
The campers will be picked up by bus from the HealthPark office and transported to the LaBelle camp on Friday, returning Sunday afternoon. Upon arrival, campers are greeted by and introduced to the counselors, who are Hope professionals, school counselors, teachers and volunteers who have completed a special Rainbow Trails education series. The camp itinerary is filled with creative, stress-reducing activities including crafts, swimming and singing.
