ProMedica Hospice and Heartland Hospice Care will host Camp Fearless for children and adolescents who have experienced the loss of a loved one. The free bereavement day camp is open for children ages 6 to 16 and features therapeutic activities, arts and crafts and team building exercises led by a team of professional counselors, hospice team members, and trained volunteers. Children will explore issues related to the impact that loss can have on their lives in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

The program also provides an opportunity for parents and guardians to meet individually with camp leaders to discuss the individual needs of the children and family following loss. Hospice staff provide information and connect families with additional resources to help children continue to grow and move forward on their grief journey.
