Camp Good Grief helps kids express loss

DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

By Taurean Batten

DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA - Young kids who have lost a loved one recently are taking time to heal by attending Camp Good Grief. 

The camp designed for children from Kindergarten to fifth grade is taking place this week at the Potter Community Center in Dougherty County.

The kids are learning to cope with their loss by having one on one time with counselors and participating in group work. They also get to involve themselves in fun activities such as sports, team building, and arts and crafts.

Wilson Hospice House Bereavement Coordinator Erica Cuneo says Camp Good Grief really gives kids a place to interact with other kids who have suffered a loss.

Camp Good Grief concludes tomorrow with a memorial service.

There is another camp going on this week for older kids called Camp Journey. Events for it take place at the Fish Camp and Darton College.
