Children’s bereavement camp needs volunteers

The Barton Foundation’s annual children’s bereavement camp – Camp Sunrise – is set for Aug. 27-29 at Galilee Camp & Conference Center in Glenbrook. There is no cost to attend, however registration ends June 21.

Camp Sunrise is designed for children ages 7 through 14 who have experienced the death of a family member. These children receive grief education and support from trained counselors and social workers, and they are able to work through any bereavement issues they may have.

Volunteers are needed for the camp weekend, especially male volunteers. To inquire about volunteering, call Robert Orr at (530) 307-0288 or (530) 543-5605.

The camp is funded by the Barton Foundation and is a program of Barton Hospice.

The camp will begin in the afternoon on Aug. 27, and midday on Aug. 29.

Residents of the South Lake Tahoe, Minden, Gardnerville and the Carson City areas may apply to attend.
