Registration Deadline for Hospice Camp BEARable Is Tuesday, July 7

The registration deadline for State of the Heart Hospice’s Camp BEARable for grieving children is Tuesday, July 7. This year marks the 15th year for the camp which is free and open to any child, ages six to 15, who is grieving the loss of a loved one. There need be no association with hospice care. The camp is July 17-19 at the Spiritual Center at Marie Stein.

The camp combines fun, music and games along with serious dialogue about grief and loss. Those children attending in the past say they enjoyed the camp and say they came away with a better understanding of their grief. For many of the youth, it is the first time they have felt comfortable talking about the loss in their life of a loved one.

State of the Heart is a non-profit agency that provides care to patients and families in eastern Indiana and western Ohio who are confronting a life limiting illness. For more information about the camp, call State of the Heart Hospice Camp Director Ashlee Carder at 1-800-417-7535 or email her at acarder@stateoftheheartcare.org.
