Gulfside Hospice to host bereavement camp for kids

NEW PORT RICHEY — Gulfside Hospice hosts a Kids Bereavement Day Camp from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 1 at Gulfside's Bereavement and Community Outreach Center, 6224 Lafayette St., New Port Richey.

Participants will go on an imaginary adventure through the "Moody Mountain Range" as they learn to work through their emotions after losing a loved one. At the "mad canyon" they will write what makes them mad on a canvas and then throw paint at it to make a unique piece of art. At the "teary valley," they will write a letter to or a poem about their lost loved one. At the "worry waterfall," they will make worry dolls out of Popsicle sticks. At the top of "happy mountain," they will plant flowers and have a water fight and ice cream.

The camp is for kids ages 6-12. For information, call 727-844-3946.
