Southcoast VNA is now accepting applications for Camp Angel Wings children’s bereavement camp.

Southcoast Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) is now accepting applications for Camp Angel Wings, a bereavement camp for children ages 6 to 15, to be held July 13 and 14, 2019 at Camp Welch, Assonet, MA.

Camp Angel Wings is provided in a traditional camp setting where children will enjoy day camp experiences like swimming and other fun activities. In addition, the camp offers children a variety of specially developed activities and related small group sessions to help them communicate their feelings of grief and learn healthy grieving techniques and coping skills. Since 2004, Camp Angel Wings has supported grieving children from the community by offering this meaningful two-day camp at no cost.

The goal of Camp Angel Wings is to minimize the isolation that children often experience after the death of a loved one by offering children the opportunity grieve alongside others with similar experiences and needs in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

To be eligible, the death of the child’s loved one must have occurred prior to April 1, 2019. One application is required for each child attending camp. Applications are due no later than June 21, 2019. Due to limited space, a waiting list is expected and applications will be reviewed in the order they are received.
