Newton, NC – After a loved one dies, how does a child put into words that their heart is breaking? How do you reassure them grief is normal and that there are other children like them that also grieve?

Carolina Caring and Rising Hope Farms in Claremont have teamed up once again to offer Brighter Days Children’s Grief Camp. During the memorable one-day camp experience, kids interact with other children who have also lost someone close to them. The day is filled with times to share their memories and feelings in age-appropriate groups, play fun games, fish, paddle-boat and make crafts. The serene camp location also provides an opportunity to ride one of the horses at the farm.

This year’s camp will be held Friday, June 21, 2019 from 9:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Young people, ages 6-18, who have experienced the loss of a significant loved one are welcome to attend this free camp.

The reservation deadline is June 14, 2019. Please call early as spaces are limited.
