MedStar, Hospice Offer Camp Sunrise

Camp Sunrise

Unique Camp Helps Kids Deal With Grief

MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown and Hospice of St. Mary’s are offering Camp Sunrise in June for kids age 7 through 15 who have lost a loved one through death. The camp addresses the unique way children go through the grieving process and helps them with a developmentally appropriate response to death.

The weekend camp will be offered June 1 through 3 at Camp Maria Retreat Center, 41290 Camp Maria Road in Leonardtown. Times are 5:30 to 7 pm June 1, 9 am to 3:45 pm June 2, and 9 am to 2 pm June 3.

Camp Maria is an opportunity for children to learn how to express feelings and thoughts on the loss of a loved one, remember and honor the loved one, and share and connect with other kids who have experienced loss.

Camp Sunrise involves many forms of creative grief exploration, along with the personal support of a mentor. There will be many exciting activities like art, horse riding, canoeing, yoga, swimming, games and much more.

The camp is free but registration is required. For information or register, call the Bereavement Department at Hospice of St. Mary’s at 301-994-3078 or 301-994-3565.
