LAKEPORT, Calif. — Hospice Services of Lake County recognizes and addresses the unique ways children grieve and heal from a loss of a loved one.

Families with children ages 6 years and older who have experienced the death of a significant person in their lives are invited to attend a one-day, free bereavement camp.

The camp is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 12, from 10 a.m. to noon in Clearlake.

Camp activities are designed for healing in a fun and positive environment with equine therapy and a family art project.

Wings of Hope Bereavement Camps are offered periodically throughout the year and are facilitated by bereavement counselors and trained volunteers.

Most of us will experience the life-altering experience of losing a loved one: the death of a best friend, a parent, son or daughter.

These losses can be even more traumatic to children and youth.

These are powerful personal events that, if not dealt with effectively, can cycle into a landslide of life-changing events.

Preregistration is required for Saturday’s camp, and space is limited. For more information and to reserve space, contact Jennifer Nystrom by calling 707-263-6222 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
