Applications are being accepted for Camp Phoenix, a summer day-camp for children and teens, ages 7 to 15, who are grieving the death of someone close. Two sessions are offered; July 13, 14 and 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at King’s Landing Park in Huntingtown and August 3, 4 and 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at East Johns Youth Center in Lusby.
Camp Phoenix offers the opportunity for kids to share their feelings of grief and loss in a supportive and understanding environment. Campers enjoy traditional camp activities, such as swimming, sports, games and crafts, as well as group discussion and creative activities led by professional counselors and trained volunteers. Camp is a time to meet new people and have fun while learning skills to cope with a death and build self esteem.
For information or to register, call Stacey Newman at 410-535-0892 or email email@example.com. The registration deadline for both sessions is June 24. Camp Phoenix, like all Calvert Hospice bereavement programs, is offered free of charge to Calvert County residents.
