Grief Camps for Kids

With summer upon us, have you considered finding a "grief camp" for your children to attend?

Often, your local hospice will sponsor such a thing. Exclusively Christian grief camps for kids are rare, so prayerfully consider what's available in your community. Children might not seem like they need any help---yet. But you can help equip them now for later on when they're ready to deal with it.
If you know of other grief camps for kids this summer, please add it to the comments so others can read about it too. Thanks! ferree

Camp Agape in Glen Rose, TX * June 13 - 16 (there's an adult camp also, same dates)
