Here are some places on the Internet that we would like to share with you:
Camp Braveheart is a day camp for children and youth who have experienced the death of a close friend or family member. Founded in 1995 by the Hospice of Northeast Georgia Medical Center, the Braveheart Program has provided grief support to over 1000 children via the camp experience and school-based support groups.
Camp Braveheart is carefully designed to help children and youth learn to cope with the complicated emotions that arise from the death of a loved one. The most important thing that campers learn during the week is that they are not alone — other youth have experienced similar losses. They may be different from the kids at church or school, but at Camp Braveheart, they are all the same.
Camp Braveheart takes place in June and July at Walter’s Barn in Lula, GA. This camp is provided at no cost and is open to any child in the community who has experienced a significant death. It is sponsored by the Hospice of North-east Georgia Medical Center and funded by community and private donations.
