Description

Hope Healthcare will host its Rainbow Trails Camp Sunday, Oct. 24, at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers where children ages 6-17 who have experienced the loss of a loved one are welcome to attend.   The day camp will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and offer campers creative, stress-reducing activities like crafts, recreation, and singing, along with activities to support the grieving process. Led by experienced Hope counselors and music and art therapists, campers will receive healing care while learning to cope with complex emotions after the loss of a family member or friend.   “For more than thirty years, Hope has offered Rainbow Trails Camp to children who have experienced the loss of a loved one,” said Samira K. Beckwith, Hope Healthcare president and CEO. “The pandemic has caused tremendous grief for so many families, making this camp more vital and meaningful. Thankfully, through the efforts of our partners and volunteers, we will be able to bring a smile to many children’s faces while providing comfort, friendship, and joy.”   There is no charge for the camp and Hope will host an orientation via Zoom for parents, campers, and guardians prior to the start. Lunch is provided. The deadline to submit applications is Oct. 18. To learn more about Rainbow Trails Camp or to register a camper, visit https://www.hopehcs.org/rainbowtrailscamp.
