Hospice of Central PA offers this special weekend camp for children, ages 6-15, who are grieving the death of a family member. Camp Dragonfly offers a safe environment where children can openly express their feelings and have fun. Facilitated by trained bereavement counselors and volunteers, Camp Dragonfly is made possible through the generosity of the Kline Foundation, McCormick Foundation and the Pollock Foundation. It is free of charge for all participants, but campers and camp volunteers must apply in advance.
In 2021, HCP will be offering two one-day camps, on October 23rd or the 24th at Camp Hebron.
There is a family component to camp this year, parent/guardian participation in the day is required. Please contact the Journey Program with any questions on this new format.
