Camp Brave Heart Helps Kids Deal with Grief, Loss

Chaplain Mark Davenport with KSST’s Enola Gay

Cypress Basin Hospice Chaplain Mark Davenport explained this summer’s Camp Brave Heart during Wednesday’s KSST Good Morning Show. The two-day camp is designed for children who have experienced grief or loss. It is free, and will be offered in Sulphur Springs on July 18 and 19 at First United Methodist Church. Contact to find out more. There are also camps in Paris and Mt Pleasant this summer.

“Finding Missing Pieces” is the theme of this year’s camp for boys and girls ages 6-13 who have experienced the death or loss of a loved one or close friend. The safe and enriching environment focuses on the various ways they may be feeling sadness or loss, and allows them to connect with other children who may be experiencing similar feelings. God’s love for them is stressed throughout the camp. Besides educational sessions, there will crafts, games, songs and fun activities throughout the day-long sessions, scheduled from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm on Thursday July 18 and Friday July 19. Registration can be done by calling 903-577-1510.
