Camp Connect – Blue Wahoos Stadium on April 30.

Elizabeth Wright of Covenant Care discusses Camp Connect, a bereavement day camp for children ages 6-17 who have suffered a loss, or those who have a terminally-ill loved one.

At Camp Connect children find laughter in their tears, strength in their fears and a helping hand in their journey through grief.

Camp Connect will take place at Blue Wahoos Stadium on Saturday, April 30th from 8:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Thanks to generous community support, Camp Connect is free and open to any child in our community.

Utilizing confidence-building exercises and artistic activities, Camp Connect gives children the opportunity to explore and express their emotions, equips them with a better understand of their grief and offers ways of coping with their feelings – all while making connections with others who have experienced a loss.

Losing a loved one is especially hard for children. Before they graduate from high school, one out of every 20 children will lose a parent — and that number does not include those who experience the death of a sibling, a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, or friend. Many children simply have not developed the skills to cope with tragedy.
