    Grief Support

    As a family based program, staff and volunteers assist the child by not only addressing the child’s grief, but by supporting the rest of the family members who play a significant role in their lives and are also grieving the same loss.

Bereavement Camp for Children 7 to 18

"Welcome to Camp"

When children or teens and their families experience the death of a significant person in their life, they need help to deal with the strong emotions of grief.

Columbia Montour Hospice has a mission to facilitate the grieving process for children, teens and their families in a safe and nurturing environment.

The bereavement camps currently offered by Columbia Montour Hospice are Camp Courage I and Camp Courage II offered in spring and the fall. As an adjunct to the camps, Pre-Camp Grief Support Groups are offered before each camp.

The mission of the bereavement camps and the Pre-Camp Grief Support Group is to facilitate the grieving process of children and teens and their families who have suffered the death of a significant person while providing a safe and healing experience.

The Bereavement Camps are offered free of charge to all participants.

Camp Courage and the Pre-Camp Grief Support Group provides children and teens, ages 7 - 18, the opportunity to come together to learn new ways of dealing with their grief, and to meet other children and families who have experienced similar losses.

At Camp Courage, grief work is balanced with fun-filled activities as children and teens enjoy the many amenities offered at the beautiful state-of-the-art camp village at Camp Victory in Millville, PA. (www.campvictory.org). The Pre-Camp Grief Support Group sessions are held at the Village in Eyers Grove, PA.

Each year, funds must be raised in order to offer the Bereavement Camps free of charge to all the children and volunteers who attend. The camping season has been funded by many individual community members, churches and area businesses. Several funding sources include Columbia Montour Hospice, GMC Children's Miracle Network, the Central Susquehanna Community Foundation, and the Chris Shultz Run/Walk/Cheer 5K.

The Turtle

The symbol of the turtle was provided to Camp Courage by artist David Armstrong, and signifies healing, protection and courage.

Healing

"Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.” -Tori Amos
