Camp BraveHearts is a family grief camp hosted by Methodist Hospice for children six to 16 and their parent or caregiver. 

Through games, music, and art, trained professionals and volunteers help children and adults explore their emotions, thoughts, and questions involving grief and walk beside them as they take their first steps in the healing process. 

Camp BraveHearts is a place where children and their families can come to understand the process of grief and to know that it’s not something you just get over,” explains Dee Flood, community development manager, Methodist Hospice.  “Grief is a journey that you have to go through.” 

This year’s camp will run June 7-9 at Saint Columba Episcopal Retreat Center, 4577 Billy Maher Road. For more information and to register, call 901-818-2107.
