A free day camp for children and teens ages 5 to 17 who have recently experienced the death of a loved one

Seasons Hospice Foundation is hosting Camp Kangaroo on July 12 to 14 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Camp Kangaroo is a supportive, therapeutic environment for children and teens who have experienced the death of someone close to them.

Dedicated professionals and trained volunteers from AccentCare Hospice lead the camp. It provides campers an opportunity to:

  • Build relationships and feel less alone in their loss
  • Receive grief education and emotional support
  • Experience a wide variety of fun activities

Children and teens ages 5 to 17 who have experienced the loss of a loved one in the last three years are welcome.

Children experience grief in their own unique way. Please complete and submit the inquiry form. A staff member will contact you for an interview that will help their team prepare for and meet each camper’s individual needs.

See the Camp Kangaroo flyer with the QR Code and more details.

Register online to attend.
