Camp for children experiencing loss comes to Mt. Orab

By Martha Jacob –

Camp Good Grief 2016 is for children 5 to 13 who have experienced loss. This year, for the first time, the camp is being offered in Mount Orab Park from June 27 to July 1.
According to Denise Emerson, with Stein Hospice, loss for children is different for each of them.
“Camp Good Grief is for children who have suffered through a death, a divorce/separation, a family member in jail or a family member deployed overseas in the military,” Emerson said. “Loss can be felt deeply by foster children taken from their homes or even the death of a special pet.”
She continued, “Camp Good Grief is a safe place for these children to express their feelings and also learn how to cope with their feelings.”
This is a week-long summer day camp which will be held at the Mt. Orab Village Park. The children will learn about healthy coping mechanisms to help them through the healing process.
Registration is $10 for a material fee, but scholarships are readily available for all children.
“We never turn away any child for inability to pay,” Emerson added.
“Camp Good Grief will consist of many speakers as well as pet, art and music therapy. It has proved to be very successful through the years and we are excited about bringing it to Brown County.”
To register online, visit www.steinhospice.org. For more information please contact Kathy at kfailor@steinhospice.org or call (419) 625-5269.
