Camp Heart Songs

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C., July 1, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Four Seasons Compassion for Life, Flat Rock, announces its 12th annual Camp Heart Songs to be held at Camp Tekoa, on Saturday and Sunday, August 15-16, 2015.

Now in its 12th year, Camp Heart Songs is a two day camp for children who need to grieve in a fun, safe and supportive environment. Children aged 6-12 years who have experienced the loss of a parent, sibling or other loved one are eligible to attend.

The focus of the camp’s activities is to promote healthy expressions of grief and learn to share and empathize with other peers who have had similar grief experiences.

Professional bereavement counselors, chaplains, social workers, hospice volunteers and staff lead the support groups and cooperative activities to guide the children as they learn new coping skills and build self-esteem and confidence. Favorite activities include swimming, sharing time with trained, certified therapy dogs, cheering for one another as they take turns climbing the 80-foot rock wall, crafts, games, and a bonfire complete with s’mores.

The event provides breakfast, morning and afternoon snacks, lunch, dinner and breakfast on Sunday.

Additionally, a one day camp has been developed for adults accompanying children attending Camp Heart Songs. This opportunity offers adults a space away from the stresses of parenting children who are grieving. Support will be available from peers and professional bereavement counselors. There will be opportunities to journal, take a quiet walk, fish, canoe, draw, paint and spend time with trained certified therapy dogs.

Sunday morning, August 16, will be a memorable closing ceremony that includes a video of the camp day.

Pre-application for child participants is due by July 10. The camp is free of charge for those children and parents who are accepted.
