Twin County Hospice to Host 19th Annual Camp Healing Hearts for Grieving Children & Adolescents July 23, 2016

June 21, 2016

Twin County Hospice of Twin County Regional Healthcare (TCRH) will host their 19th Annual Camp Healing Hearts. This day camp offers support to area children and adolescents that have experienced the loss of a loved one.  This year’s theme is “Love Never Ends”.

Camp Healing Hearts will be held at Camp Dickenson in Fries, Virginia on Saturday, July 23, 2016 from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm. Camp Healing Hearts is free of charge to participants through the support of the Twin County Community Foundation.

Camp Healing Hearts has been specifically developed for children and adolescents, Grades K through 12, who have suffered the loss of a loved one. Through fun activities, creative expression and education, campers learn that their feelings and emotions are normal, that what has happened to them has happened to others and that they can move forward while remembering their loved one. 

Camp Healing Hearts is staffed with social workers, nurses, a chaplain and volunteers from Twin County Hospice. Combined, these dedicated individuals form a skilled team that is able to address the special needs of grieving children and adolescents.

Referrals are encouraged from local agencies, parents and significant others who recognize the child’s or adolescent’s pain of losing someone they love.

For more information, to make a referral or to register, please contact Twin County Hospice at (276) 236-0973.
