PEORIA — UnityPoint Hospice-Peoria is accepting camp registrations for children age 5 to 18 who are working through issues of grief following the death of a loved one. “Kourage Kids” is a free one-day outing for young people who have experienced a loss in their life.
UnityPoint Hospice-Peoria first established the camp in 2000 with a goal of providing a safe arena for kids to share their grief with others and to learn healthy ways of coping with their loss.
This year’s camp will be held at Camp Manitoumi in rural Lowpoint on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Buses will leave the UnityPoint Health-Methodist Atrium Building (900 Main Street) at 8:00 a.m. and will return to the Atrium by 5 p.m. The camp agenda will include games, face-painting, crafts, and sports. Lunch is provided as well as transportation to and from the camp free of charge.
For additional information and registration, contact UnityPoint Hospice-Peoria at (309) 672-5746.
Funding for the one-day camp is provided by the Methodist Foundation.
