Staff report



Rays of Hope Camp helps children cope with bereavement.


CHP Home Care and Hospice will conduct its annual Rays of Hope Camp, Aug. 17-18, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. daily at Camp Palmer in Fayette.

The camp is for children and youth ages 6-17 from throughout the area who have recently lost a loved one. It helps them gain support, develop friendships, and have a better understanding of the grief process. Rays of Hope Camp provides an environment where kids can express feelings of loss among others their age with similar experiences.

Fun activities for participants include swimming, rock wall climbing, team-building, crafts, games, and music, among others.

The camp is free, but all participants must be pre-registered by Aug. 12. Call Rebecca Short at (419) 445-5128 or (419) 633-7590. Information and registration form is also posted at www.comhealthpro.org on the events page.
