TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Big Bend Hospice Youth Bereavement is helping kids work through their grief.
This weekend, they're hosting camp Woe Be Gone.
It's for kids ages 6 to 12 around the Big Bend who have experienced the death of a loved one.
Grief counselors and volunteers will help lead campers through activities.
Those include creative arts, movement, group discussion and a special remembrance ceremony.
"It's super important. Sometimes our youngest grievers get overlooked when they experience a death. They grieve just like the rest of us, and this is a great opportunity for them to be able to express their feelings, tell their stories of grief and get to know other kids that have been through similar situations," Katie Kliner, a grief and loss counselor said.
It's happening this Saturday at Bradley's Pond in Tallahassee located at 9002 Bradley Road.
A light breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided.
It's free to attend. Contact 850-878-5310 to register.
