Hospice & Palliative CareCenter to Sponsor Camp Carousel For Children, Teens & Adults Grieving the Death of Loved Ones

Filed under: Hospice,senior living guide — seniorlivingguide @ 8:42 am

WINSTON-SALEM, patient N.C., sales  June 11, nurse 2012 – Camp Carousel begun 22 years ago by the Grief Counseling Center of Hospice & Palliative CareCenter – will hold its 2012 summer bereavement camp Monday, July 23 – Friday, July 27.  The camp is designed to help grieving children and teens from rising first graders through rising high school seniors as well as adults learn how to cope with death-related loss in healthy ways.

“Throughout the week, attendees meet others who are grieving similar death-related losses, which is also an essential component of Camp Carousel,” explains Donna Hampton, Director of Grief & Bereavement Services at Hospice & Palliative CareCenter.

“We seek to help promote healthy mourning through small group grief sessions, creative play, art therapy, expressive movement, music therapy, animal-assisted therapy, and writing.  Camp Carousel activities are designed to provide campers with a natural outlet for the expression and understanding of the intense—and often unfamiliar—feelings that accompany significant death-related losses.”

Camp Carousel includes age-appropriate grief support groups, which will meet at specific times during the week of July 23 – 27, on Hospice’s campus at 101 Hospice Lane, off Bolton Street/Burke Mill Road, in Winston-Salem. The program will culminate on Friday, July 27, with a Memorial Balloon Release ceremony at Bolton Park for all participants involved throughout the week and their families.

Camp Carousel is facilitated by Grief Counseling Services masters-prepared counselors and by carefully-trained volunteers.  Many of the volunteers at Camp Carousel are school counselors, graduate students in counseling programs, and those who have benefitted from attending Camp Carousel due to their own death-related losses in the past.  In addition to working with children and teens, counselors also offer direction to parents on ways to better understand their child’s grief process.  Anyone in the community who is grieving a death-related loss can attend Camp Carousel.  There is no time limit regarding when the death occurred.

 

Following is the schedule for this year’s Camp Carousel:

  • Grief Groups for Children

      Monday – Thursday, July 23-26, 9:00 a.m.-Noon

101 Hospice Lane, off Bolton Street/Burke Mill Road, in Winston-Salem

 

  • Teen Grief Groups

Monday and Wednesday, July 23 & 25, 6:00–9:00 p.m.

Dinner will be provided.

 

  • Adult Grief Groups 

Tuesday and Thursday, July 24 & 26, 6:00-9:00 p.m.

101 Hospice Lane, off Burke Mill Road, in Winston-Salem

 

  • Memorial Balloon Release for All Participants and their Families          

Friday, July 27, 6:30 p.m.

If you are interested in attending Camp Carousel or know of someone who would benefit from these programs, contact Donna Hampton, Hospice & Palliative CareCenter, at 336-331-1319 or go to the website, www.hospicecarecenter.org.

The cost for Camp Carousel is $25 per person.  Partial and full scholarships are available.

 

Since 1979, Hospice & Palliative CareCenter has been committed to providing quality medical, emotional, spiritual, and social support to patients and families who face a serious illness – regardless of diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment.  Today, Hospice & Palliative CareCenter provides these services in a 13-county area from four offices (Mocksville, Walnut Cove, and Salisbury in addition to Winston-Salem) and the Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home.  Hospice & Palliative CareCenter’s Grief Counseling Services offers bereavement services to families of Hospice patients as well as grief counseling to the community at large. Hospice also offers pediatric palliative care to infants, children and their families.  For more information about Hospice & Palliative CareCenter, contact Ann Gauthreaux, public relations director, at 336-768-3972, or see Hospice’s website at www.hospicecarecenter.org.
