2018 Camp HeartSong Application (click to open)
The CTMC Hospice Care team strives to provide compassionate care to not only our patients, but each loved one impacted by their passing. When it comes to the loss of a loved one, children can be one of the most misunderstood and underserved groups. As we work each day to fulfill our commitment to wrapping the entire family in our support, CTMC Hospice is inspired to address the needs of this vulnerable population.
Grieving children often struggle to understand or express their grief in a healthy way, and supporting a grieving child can be challenging for adults who may not know where to start when talking to children about death. It is important for grieving children to be given the opportunity to process their grief in a supportive environment, which is why CTMC Hospice is proud to offer Camp Heartsong for children who have lost a loved one. Participants are able to get to know a group of peers who can relate to their experience. The camp offers a compassionate and therapeutic atmosphere where children can honor the memory of their loved one, while they enjoy camping activities like fishing, archery and crafts. Counselors will provide group and individual grief counseling to the campers.
Camp Heartsong will be held at John Knox Ranch, 1661 John Knox Road in Fischer, Texas, on Thursday, June 21, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. It is for children ages 8-13. For more information, or to receive an application, please contact CTMC Hospice Care at 512.754.6159.
