We all cope with grief differently, but its weight can impact us mentally and physically. Seeing the need for grief support among families, especially children, inspired Wellstar Hospice Care to host Camp Tranquility, a one-day community workshop for families who have experienced the loss of a loved one.
“The child campers are accompanied by their adult caregivers and through breakout sessions they learn healthy mechanisms for understanding and experiencing grief in a fun and supportive environment,” said Natalie McNeal, executive director of Wellstar Hospice Care. “This year, activities will include healthy ways to grieve through exercise, reflection, arts and crafts, and new friendships.”
This year’s Camp Tranquility, funded by donations to the Wellstar Foundation, will be held Monday, July 17 from 9 AM - 5 PM at Truist Park.
