Due to the current health situation, we have made some changes to our Kids Grief Camp for the summer but are moving forward in our plans to continue to offer this valuable experience for our community's kids.
Our dates are now July 8th-10th, and August 3rd-5th
Issues of grief and loss are hard for anyone to handle, but they can be especially confusing and painful for children and teens. We invite your children ages 6-16 to take part in what will be a positive and healing experience with our free Kids Grief Camp.
Camp takes place during the day at Reach 4A Star Riding Academy, and our hope is to assist your child or teen in understanding their grief process. We will create a safe place for them to talk about their loss, and they will learn coping strategies to handle their grief experiences through their work with the horses and other activities.
It's an opportunity for your kids to spend time with kids their own age who have faced a similar loss, share their experience, play and grow together, and feel a sense of normalcy.
What we are all experiencing as a result of COVID-19 is a form of grief as well and can be especially difficult for kids. We will be addressing those concerns as well.
We are working diligently on a plan that will include smaller groups, making sure campers will be appropriately distanced, adding sanitation stations, single-use items, and other appropriate measures to keep both campers and staff safe.
