Camp helps grieving children cope
The weekend of healing and remembrance was attended by 72 children between the ages of 4 and 17 from across the South Coast region and from as far away as Brockton, Rockland, Cotuit and Rhode Island.
"The success of 2006 Camp Angel Wings shows that there is a profound need for this emotional outlet," said Deanna Upchurch, Bereavement Coordinator at Southcoast Home Care, Hospice & Palliative Care & Infusion Services.
"It is very important for children and teens who are sharing like experiences in grief to have an educational, therapeutic experience that is also an enjoyable one. This year approximately two thirds of the campers were grieving the loss of a parent."
