The theme for camp will be “Rhythms of Life.” The goal will be to help the campers understand that their grief journey is a unique as their heartbeat and may take on many different rhythms as they continue through life. Activities center on the idea one can use alternative methods to express and address grief emotions that may be difficult to articulate verbally. The participants will engage in activities such as a talking circle, drumming in a drum circle, and creating a “Feelings Web.”mes is focused on fellowship, fun and grief work for bereaved children and teens in southwest Michigan and northern Indiana. All who have experienced the death of a significant person in their lives are invited to attend camp. It is not necessary to be a member of a Lory’s Place group to take part in the fun.
Camp Lifetimes opportunities continue to be offered without a fee for the participants.
