Supporting Children in Our Community with Southcoast Health Angel Wings Retreat in MA
Southcoast Health Angel Wings Retreat is a two-day bereavement camp in Assonet, MA for children and teens, ages 6 through 15 who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
The Angel Winis Retreat was developed for children and teens who share similar experiences with grief. The camp provides them with an educational, therapeutic experience that is also enjoyable. The camp helps counter a sense of isolation that children can feel after losing a loved one. Participating in activities such as swimming, focused arts and crafts activities, and small discussion groups can help children and teens explore their many thoughts and feelings about grief. It also encourages them to try new or familiar activities that help them feel good about themselves.
Our camp activities include:
- Team building
- Sharing of loss
- Focused arts and crafts
- Activities memorializing loved ones
- Breakfast, lunch and snacks
In addition to fun-filled activities, the Southcoast Health Angel Wings Retreat:
- Gives children and teens the opportunity to remember their loved ones
- Is staffed by Southcoast VNA Supportive Care Center staff, trained volunteers and caring members of the community
- Allows boys and girls to be themselves and grieve without feeling pressured
- Helps reduce the sense of isolation while improving self esteem
Through Southcoast VNA, the Angel Wings Retreat provides bereavement support to children in the South Coast community.
