To community and family members,
The deadline for applying to Camp MAGIK, a healing camp for bereaved children and adolescents, is rapidly approaching. The fall session will be held at the Swamp in Union Point October 13-15, 2017. Applications need to be postmarked, emailed, or faxed to them no later than October 4th, 2017. They will provide FREE transportation to camp and back depending on need.
The camp is well suited to all youth who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or other close loved one, especially youth who have experienced trauma linked to the death. Professional bereavement counselors, trained in grief and trauma, lead all counseling sessions.
There is also a retreat available for adults who want to process their own grief with other adults who are grieving. The adult retreat is held on the same campus as the children’s camp session, also led by professional bereavement counselors.
The camp sessions are FREE OF CHARGE to all participating children and adolescents. Please share this information/announcement with families you feel may benefit from this FREE service for bereaved children.
