Hope Healthcare is inviting children ages six through 17 who have experienced the loss of a loved one during the past year to the annual Rainbow Trails Camp Friday, April 5 through Sunday, April 7 at the Riverside Retreat in LaBelle.
Over the weekend, Rainbow Trails campers will participate in recreation, crafts, swimming and singing, along with activities to support the grieving process, teach skills to cope with loss, and memorialize their loved one.
“People of all ages experience loss and express grief in different ways,” said Samira K. Beckwith, Hope Healthcare president and CEO. “We created the Rainbow Trails Camp 30 years ago because we wanted to have a special place for children to interact with others who understand their loss.”
Rainbow Trails Camp is led by experienced Hope counselors, art and music therapists and is supported by community volunteers.
There is no charge for the camp, and Hope will host an orientation for parents and guardians. Children will be picked up by bus from Hope’s Fort Myers campus on Friday and will return Sunday afternoon.
