FAIRHAVEN, Mass. — Southcoast® Visiting Nurse Association, known in the community as Southcoast VNA, will host its 11th annual bereavement camp, "Camp Angel Wings," in July. This is a meaningful, fun-filled, two-day camp experience for children and teens, ages 6 through 15, who are grieving the loss of a loved one. The camp will be held on July 12 and 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Camp Welch in Assonet.
Campers will participate in various interactive activities including music, swimming, arts and crafts, as a positive way to help share their loss and memorialize loved ones. All activities are designed to reduce feelings of isolation and improve the self-esteem of children and teens who share like experiences in grief.
Camp Angel Wings is free for all campers and registration is required. Applications to attend Camp Angel Wings will be accepted online beginning on April 1. Please visit http://www.southcoast.org/vna/camp.html for more information. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible as space is limited. The deadline for registration is June 9.
