A camp that specializes in providing a weekend experience is available for grieving children ages 7-14.

Camp Amanda programs help kids begin to talk about their feelings related to a death of someone special and teaches them coping skills. Camp leaders include professional bereavement counselors and specially trained volunteers. Participants also engage in traditional camp activities.

In its 33rd year, up to 30 children may participate in Camp Amanda. There is no charge to the children or their families. The camp dates are July 28-30.

The deadline for registering is June 15, or when the available spaces are filled. For more information, call Walla Walla Community Hospice at 509-525-5561 or visit www.wwhospice.org/campamanda.
