HOSPICE OF BROWARD COUNTY GRIEF SUPPORT PROGRAM HELPED CHILDREN COPE WITH LOSS

Camp SeaStar Provided Adventure-Based Counseling Weekend

 
 


Ft. Lauderdale, FL Local children and teens gathered recently for a weekend of sharing stories and paying tribute to those they have loved and lost. June 8-10, the inaugural Camp SeaStar in Broward County was held at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. An adventure-based bereavement program facilitated by Hospice of Broward County, Camp SeaStar is provided free-of-charge to the campers who attended.

The weekend retreat welcomed South Florida children ages 6 to 18 who have experienced a loss and received grief support in our care. Camp SeaStar provides a safe and supportive environment for children where they can understand their feelings of loss, find healthy ways to express them and connect with other children who know what it feels like to lose someone they love.

Camp SeaStar is a fun-filled weekend of friendship and healing with counseling woven into traditional camp activities such as fishing, canoeing, campfire, arts and crafts and games. With adventure-based counseling, we offer grieving children the opportunity to express their feelings and tap into their inner strengths through interactive challenges, trust-based activities and cooperative games, said Regina Di Pietro, Senior Director of Clinical Services for Hospice of Broward County and Hospice of Palm Beach County.

It was an honor to watch the teens achieve emotional breakthroughs during a particular team- building challenge, where the group must cross an imaginary gator-filled river together, said Chelsea Johnson, Supportive Care Manager. It touched our hearts to watch one special young lady, as she verbalized her frustrations with the grief process. At the end of the challenge, she tearfully explained that having a grief counselor was like having a river angel to help her navigate through her river of grief. Yet this was just one of many moments like itI cannot express how great the need is in our community to provide clinical grief support for young children and teens. It is largely an unaddressed need, and one that has opportunity to heal such great pain in our young people, Johnson added.

For more information about Camp SeaStar in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, please contact Supportive Care Manager, Chelsea Johnson at (561) 227-5178 or email cjohnson@hpbc.com .
