We are pleased to announce that The Sea Star Program’s Camp Stingray is open to grieving children, ages 5-10, Kindergarten - 5th grade. The camp will run from Monday, July 22nd through Friday, July 26th, 2019 at The Therapeutic Recreation Complex.
The purpose of Camp Stingray is to bring children, whose loved ones have died, together for support and friendship. We will provide an environment that is safe and fun as they participate in sharing their stories, music, art, outdoor activities, games, and organized cooperative sports.
Camp Stingray provides a new support system to children who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
Throughout the week, campers will have an opportunity to:
- Identify ways to cope with change
- Improve self-esteem
- Learn to recognize and validate feelings
- Identify safe ways of grief expression
- Recognize that having fun and celebrating are still a part of life
