Camp Courage is a fun-filled annual summer weekend open to children, ages 6 to 17, who have experienced the loss of a family member or friend. Camp Courage offers a supportive environment in which they can gain an understanding of grief and loss.
Crafts, music, games and rituals provide innovative and productive ways for children to cope with their grief. Activities are designed to give campers the opportunity to share their emotions with others who have experienced similar losses and to encourage healthy coping skills.
Since it is important in the healing process for children to feel free to have fun and just be kids, Camp Courage balances grief programming with recreational activities such as swimming, hiking and sports.
Camp Courage is offered for children at a very minimal fee thanks to the generous support provided by the Annual Carrie Mach Memorial Golf Outing.
Programming at Camp Courage is provided by grief counselors, Hospice staff, chaplains, and volunteers.
Volunteers are always needed. If you are interested in volunteering for the next Camp Courage contact John Giorgio at 712-233-4144
