With over 30 years of experience providing end-of-life care and bereavement support to patients and their families, Hospice of Central Pennsylvania recognizes the unique needs that youngsters face while coping with the loss of a loved one. In response to those needs Hospice of Central Pennsylvania offers Camp Dragonfly, a “free of charge” weekend bereavement camp for children and teens that have experienced the death of a family member due to illness, accident, suicide or homicide.
This year, 2013, will be Camp Dragonfly’s nineteenth year of providing support to grieving youngsters in our community. Our Camp Dragonfly brochure provides a description of Camp Dragonfly along with the dates and locations for this year’s camps. If you know a child or teen that can benefit from participating in Camp Dragonfly, please share the enclosed information with the youngster’s parent/guardian.
We are currently accepting applications for children and teens who wish to attend Camp Dragonfly. Attendance at Camp Dragonfly requires the parent/guardian to register their child and complete a camper application. Participant space at Camp Dragonfly is limited so we encourage campers to register early.
