Camp BeginAgain helps grieving children

Camp BeginAgain is a weekend retreat for young people ages 6 to 18 that have experienced the death of a loved one.

Camp will be April 26-28 at Central Baptist Youth Camp, 45801 Central Camp Road, DeLand. Registration deadline is April 8.

Camp BeginAgain combines traditional camp activities with peer sharing and creative arts, giving the children a chance to express their feelings and to grieve with others experiencing similar emotions.

The camp is designed for children ages 6-18, along with families that may be grieving a loss. Counselors and volunteers are available throughout the weekend to listen and talk with campers. A special memorial service is held at the end of camp to remember their loved ones. Camp BeginAgain is offered by the Lawrence E. Whelan BeginAgain Children's Grief Centers, a program of Halifax Health-Hospice of Volusia/Flagler.

Compassionate individuals willing to volunteer to spend a weekend or a day helping children are needed. A free, comprehensive training program for volunteers is provided. For an application or more information, call the center at (386) 258-5100.

The cost is $100 per child and scholarships are available. Camper applications can be picked up from school guidance counselors in Volusia County or at hovf.org.
