Recent news from Friends of Caroline Hospice
FRIENDS of Caroline Hospice is excited to announce that 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.
