The death of a loved one is difficult to bear at any age. But for kids, the pain of losing a friend or family member can be overwhelming.
At Camp Caterpillar, a free day camp offered through Wellmont Hospice, children can learn to emerge from the cocoon of grief, spread their wings and fly.
Camp Caterpillar offers:
- A professionally led, fun-filled camp environment for children grades Pre K-12 and their caregivers who have experienced loss through death.
- A balance of fun activities with opportunities to talk about experiences and learn new coping skills.
- The chance for adult caregivers to participate in special, life-changing workshops addressing children’s grief issues and how to help their child cope.
Camp will conclude with a memorial service and butterfly release.
