Camp Caroline will be held on June 25, 2018, from 9am-4pm at the Port Royal Sound Foundation.
Staffed by FRIENDS of Caroline and trained student bereavement grief support facilitators, Camp Caroline is a bereavement camp for students in first through twelfth grades. Designed to provide a safe, compassionate environment where students who have lost a loved one can learn to acknowledge and express their feelings of grief, they learn how to share their grief experience with each other, to recognize the support systems around them, and to positively cope with their grief emotions.
The camp concludes with family members joining the students to celebrate the lives of the loved ones lost. This year we are thrilled to incorporate learning about The Lowcountry Ecosystem, nature trail walking and a boating eco-tour.

Friends of Caroline provides quality-of-life care that offers hope and encouragement to those nearing the end-of-life’s journey and support for their family, friends and the community.
“Like many, my first experience with hospice was long ago, and far away. My last experience was recent, and up close. When there was no longer the hope of long life, The Friends of Caroline brought us the reality of quality of life. They were there for my family and me, supporting and helping us in ways we didn’t even realize we needed – but that we’ll never forget, and always be thankful for.”
-Laurence Koolkin, Beaufort, SC – whose wife Lainie Andrew died peacefully at home, surrounded by family, after 4 months of superb palliative care.
“Prior to Ken’s diagnosis, we always looked forward to The Festival of Trees. As a part of the Beaufort community, we felt that Friends of Caroline Hospice must be an organization worth supporting…but I know, now, that until you need them, you never truly understand what it’s all about. Angels. It’s about angels…”
Jenny Bush, Beaufort, SC
