Tahoe Daily Tribune

Grieving children will get some much needed emotional help at “Camp Sunrise: Children’s Bereavement Camp” Aug. 28 through 30 at the Galilee Episcopal Camp & Conference Center, at Zephyr Cove.

Thanks to the Barton Hospital Foundation, Barton’s Hospice of the Lake/Valley and El Dorado and Douglas county schools, children attending Camp Sunrise receive grief education and support through a variety of fun-filled activities and programs. They also receive positive direction in working through bereavement issues, leaving them with a positive outlook for the future.

Trained counselors will be available to help the children all weekend.

Camp Sunrise is limited to children ages 7 to 14 who have experienced the loss of a family member and who reside in El Dorado or Douglas counties.

With loving support, grieving children share their experiences with acceptance as they move through the healing process.

Support for parents and caregivers further enhance the grieving child’s journey back to health.
