ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Losing a loved one is hard for anyone, but it's especially difficult for children. That's why Albany Community Hospice is holding Camp Good Grief this week.

It's a time for kids who've lost a loved one in the past year or two to come together to express their grief, while still being allowed to have fun, and move on with their lives.

Zibby Brock said, "We are going to talk about how we feel about the people that have passed in our family and just hang out and have fun."

Zach Cross added, "So I could have fun and try to get over my sadness and instead have fun."

Molly Davis said, "You need to get your feelings out and just talk about it instead of keeping them in all the time."

Kya Williams said, "That it's okay to cry and have fun at the same time and meet new people."

The camp is held each summer. Children are referred from school counselors or other people in the community to help them deal with their grief.
