Camp GLOW – August 6, 2016

Home Health United – Hospice would like to invite you and your family to Camp GLOW – Giving Loved Ones Wings

Camp Glow is a grief support day camp for children ages 6-14 and their parent(s) or guardian(s) who are dealing with the loss of a loved one. Since children often experience grief differently than adults, Camp GLOW is designed to specifically address children’s grief with enough counselors on-hand to offer individualized attention if needed. Breakout sessions include creating memory boxes to hold remembrances of their loved one and scrapbooking to create visual memories.

Grief support sessions will also be offered for parent(s) or guardian(s) during the camp, led by HHU-Hospice Grief Support Coordinators.  These grief support sessions will provide information and tools for parent(s) or guardian(s) to help them and their child with the grieving process.  We strongly encourage parent(s) or guardian(s) to attend Camp GLOW with their child to learn about the grieving process.

Camp GLOW is scheduled for August 6, 2016 at Traxler Park in Janesville from 10:00am – 3:00pm. Lunch, drinks, and snacks throughout the day are provided. The camp is offered free of charge thanks to the generous support of donors to the Home Health United – Visiting Nurse Service Foundation.

Space is limited, and registration is required by August 1, 2015.  If you have questions about registration or to request a registration form please call Ridley Usherwood 608-241- 6936, or visit our website at www.homehealthunited.org/hospice/campglow.

Home Health United and Dean & St. Mary’s Janesville, members of SSM Health Care of Wisconsin, are proud to support this community as health care partners.
