THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) - The deadline to sign up to volunteer at Camp Heal is only two days away. 

Every year the program takes in kids who are grieving the loss of a family member to help them work through their emotions.

Anna Brinson, a Patient Advocate at Archbold Medical Center, believes there is a need for this in the community.

She tell us these kids are often forgotten about. 

"A lot of times children feel like that there is no one else out there that has lost a mom, or a sister or a dad or a grandparent that is significant in their life and they have the opportunity to work in a group with children that are experiencing the exact same thing they are," said Brinson. 

The program is also taking applications for campers.

They have to be between 6 and 17-years-old.

Those are due by Oct. 1. 

Applications for volunteers are due Friday.
