Virtual Camp Hope 2020
Camp Hope is meeting our community's children and teens where they are through a new virtual platform. August 25th through the 27th, Camp Hope kids and teens trying to work through grief will interact with trained bereavement specialists to cope with the loss of a singificant person in that child's life.
Helping Campers Through a Webcam
This year participants will use their phones, tablets or computers with a webcam to work with our bereavement specialists through a series of discussions and activities aimed at finding tools and skills to cope with grief. Each child will receive a packet with materials which will be used to guide virtual campers through the process.
Who Can Participate?
Children and teens ages 7-17 benefit most from the camp. Parents are required to participate in a virtual orientation session the week before camp. We beleive every child in our region should have access to this camp. That's why, through grant support, Hospice of Southern West Virginia is pleased to offer this camp for FREE.
What you Need to Know
Our virtual camp Hope takes place over the course of three days in two sections. Each day is guided by the materials we send home to our campers. Children ages 7-11 will take part in camp from 11:00 a.m. each day until 12:00 p.m. Teens ages 12-17 will take part from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m.
