NORTH PLATTE, Neb. – Great Plains Home Health & Hospice along with Great Plains Health Care Foundation has set Saturday, June 11 as the date for 2016 for Footsteps Camp. Footsteps Camp is a day-long camp focused on children and teens, along with their guardians, who have experienced the death of a loved one. At the camp all participants will learn about grief and connect with others who have experienced the loss of a mom, a dad, a spouse or someone important to them. Kids and adults can develop friendships and find comfort in knowing others who have had experienced this grief.
“If I could say one thing about Footsteps it would be this – come to Footsteps,” said Renee Callaghan, hospice volunteer/bereavement coordinator. “It is a very emotional day, but it is also fun day. Your child will experience being around other kids who can relate to what they are going through and where they can tell their own grief story”.
The camp is free to all campers and is made possible by gifts to Great Plains Health Care Foundation. Lunch, snacks, activity supplies and T-shirts will be provided.
