Registration open for Camp Courageous

Gearged toward grieving kids in K-12

LUDLOW FALLS — Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County invites children who have lost a loved one to attend Camp Courageous this summer.

Camp Courageous has been available to grieving youngsters in Miami County for 22 years. Camp Courageous is offered free of charge to Miami County children and teens entering grades K-12. Held at Ludlow Falls Camp, the camp runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily June 12-16.

Designed to help kids who have lost loved ones, Camp Courageous is similar to other traditional summer camps, offering an array of active outdoor activities, bringing children and teens together to share memories, play, sing, learn and laugh. But Camp Courageous also brings together children who share an experience of loss and offers them the opportunity to grieve, memorialize their loved ones and support each other. Camp Courageous is a safe place for feelings to be expressed and for campers to gain life-long tools for coping with grief.

Camp is open to any child or teen in the community who has experienced the death of a loved one, regardless of whether Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County services have been used.

To register or for more information about Camp Courageous, call 573-2100, or stop by the Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County office at 550 Summit Ave., Troy.
