Albany - The loss of a loved one is tough, especially on kids. This week at Camp Good Grief in Albany, kids are learning different ways to deal with their grief. The two-day camp gives kids six to sixteen an opportunity to talk and play with other children who've recently lost a close family member or friend.

"They get to interact with other children who have had similar losses and they become to understand that it's okay to have these feelings that I have, whether it's sadness or anger. It comes out in many different ways," said Director Cindy Summerlin.

DeAnte Scott said, "I feel like I'm not the only one who lost somebody in my family."

Scott Summerlin said, "It's good to be around other kids who've lost loved ones. It makes you feel a lot better than just being by yourself and not knowing anybody else that's had that happen to them."

The camp is largely supported by the Nancy Lopez golf tournament fundraiser, so there's no cost to kids. About 55 campers are enrolled.

On Thursday, they'll participate in a memorial service and release butterflies in memory of the loved ones they lost.
