Experiencing a loss often brings up powerful and complicated emotions. To help children ages 5-14 deal with the unique feelings following a loss or life change, the Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri and Saint Luke’s Home Care and Hospice are offering a special day camp June 10-11th at Camp Prairie Schooner.

The camp is designed for kids who’ve experienced a loss or change, such as a death of a loved one, a divorce in the family, moving, the death of a pet, losing a home, a serious illness in the family or changing schools. Express Yourself Camp offers:

  • All-day activities to promote healthy coping skills.
  • A safe environment for youth to express emotions associated with loss.
  • Professionally trained staff including grief counselors and volunteers.
  • Lunch and snacks provided.

Small group activities include music therapy, adventure programming, arts and crafts, skits and a closing ceremony. Campers will learn different ways to express their feelings of loss and to remember a loved one or a life change in a celebratory way.  

Participants: Children (girls and boys) ages 5-14 years old (at time of camp), GS Membership not required. Campers will be dropped off at camp each day by 8am.
