Camp Grin Again 2016
Nearly 40 children attended Camp Grin Again this year. This years theme was “Inside Out” based of the new Disney Pixar animated movie. All of the campers were able to get an inside look at many of the emotions they feel from grieving the loss of their loved one. This years camp activities included horse back riding at Whisper’s of Hope Horse Farm, pet-therapy dogs from the Obedience Training Club of Wichita Falls, jump house obstacle courses, and art projects provided by the Kemp Center Arts Council. Camper’s also got to participate in music therapy and learn a new way to express their emotions.
Camp Grin Again is blessed to have wonderful facilitators and counselors who volunteer their time to ensure every child has a chance to talk about their feelings. Without them, the camp would be impossible! Atmos Energy was also gracious in providing this years BBQ to close out the camp. If you have a child that is grieving the loss of a loved one, please contact Hospice of Wichita Falls today to enroll them in one of our children’s grief programs.
