Event description
The 2020 Fall Family Camp HOPE is open to school aged youth and their families who have experienced the loss of a significant person.

About this Event

The Shepherd's Cove Hospice 2020 Fall FAMILY Camp HOPE is a day camp, offered at no cost to school aged children/teens and their families within the community who have experienced the death of a significant person. This event is being offered in lieu of the In School Bereavement Fall Camp HOPE field trip. The person that died did not have to be under the care of Shepherd's Cove Hospice. Camp HOPE introduces families to various activities and skills that may help individuals cope with grief in a positive way. At least 1 adult needs to attend with a youth. The event will be less structured so families may come/go.

Please be mindful that the event is being held outdoors. The event is held on the grounds of the Marshall Baptist Retreat Center. It is an uneven terrain. Outdoor elements will be a factor to consider. The activity sessions are spread out on the grounds, therefore a lot of walking may be involved dependent upon the sessions you choose to participate in.

SPACE IS LIMITED. Pre-registration is required by October 19, 2020. Activities include horse grooming, arts & crafts, canoeing and outdoor rec activities. All activities are centered on promoting positive coping skills for school aged children.

Due to COVID-19 the event will NOT be offered in the traditional manner. Ensuring the safety of everyone involved will be the priority. Social distancing will be enforced. At present, masks will be required when social distancing cannot be ensured. Handwashing stations will be set up at each activity station. Also, we request that families stay together. We will attempt to group families together when participating in activities. Participates will receive a phone message confirming registration. Updated information will be communicated via email or via phone. In the event of rain the event will be modified.

Breakfast and Lunch will be provided.

All attendees MUST wear closed-toe shoes (like tennis shoes) in order to participate in the equine activity, as well as weather appropriate attire.
