Camp Chimaqua (for children ages 6-12)


This overnight weekend camp, held Friday, May 31 – Sunday, June 2, is for grieving children, ages 6-12. A trained adult buddy is paired with each child for companionship, support and supervision throughout the weekend. This experience allows campers to realize they are not grieving alone, and to understand that their feelings are normal as they get to know others who have also lost a loved one. Children meet with a counselor to determine if camp will best meet their needs. Thanks to the Hospice Circle of Friends, registration is $25, and financial assistance is available. Applications must be received by May 10. For further details or to request an application, call the Pathways Center at (717) 391-2413 or (800) 924-7610.
