Hospice Services of Lake County staff and volunteers compassionately respond to the unique ways children and families grieve and heal from the death of loved ones, offering multiple services including the free annual Wings of Hope three-day camp for families with children ages 5 years and older and family support groups held monthly.
Interested families are invited to learn more about attending the next three-day overnight camp scheduled for Monday, May 23, through noon on Wednesday, May 25, at a local resort surrounded by nature. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
Daily activities at camp are designed for healing from loss and grief in a fun and positive environment featuring Josh Robinson, a nationally renowned and gifted percussionist, who uses drumming as a powerful tool for exploring and expressing emotions while building teamwork and creativity. No musical experience is necessary.
Other camp activities include dog and equine therapy, music, art, swimming, and nature walks. These vibrant activities are designed to assist participants in learning new coping skills, and building opportunities to develop support systems. A $40.00 refundable deposit will be required to reserve space.
Hospice Services’ free family support group meetings, held 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month, offer opportunities for families to learn how loss uniquely impacts each member and how to use tools to support each other now and over time. Add in comfort food and fun activities and the stage is set for an evening of family togetherness. The next family support group is on May 18.
