Baptist Centers for Good Grief hosted the 21st annual Camp Good Grief for kids online this year from June 1-4. Campers viewed virtual grief sessions through Facebook and participated in activities with Camp Good Grief kits that were safely prepared and dropped off at each home.
“Unfortunately, the grieving process doesn’t stop because of a pandemic,” said Angela Hamblen Kelly, executive director of Baptist Centers for Good Grief. “That’s why we were excited to offer our Camp Good Grief online this year, where our campers could participate from the safety of their homes. It allowed our families to experience camp together and share openly with each other. We also had grief counselors from Baptist Centers for Good Grief available to provide support for our campers.”
Each Camp Good Grief kit included a backpack, T-shirts, crayons, bubbles and activities to use during online grief sessions. These sessions were hosted on the Baptist Centers for Good Grief Facebook page and were available to the public. Registered campers received Camp Good Grief kits, and handouts for activities were posted online and available to download.
