  2. Wellspring Lutheran Services offers a free two-night, three-day camp for children and teens, age 6-17. It's called Camp Hope and it's designed for kids who have experienced the death of someone they love.

    Grief is a normal response to death, and children grieve differently from adults. Children grieve in spurts, and express their grief using art and play. Camp Hope is set up according to the child's age and developmental level. Campers are placed in groups according to their age, and participate in activities to help bring healing to their hurts.

    Camp Hope provides a safe place for children and teens to interact with peers who have experienced similar losses. Campers can express their feelings of grief, learn coping skills and most importantly, begin a healthy healing process.

There is no charge to attend Camp Hope because Wellspring Lutheran Services receives grants and generous donations to help fund the camp each year.

    It doesn't matter how long ago the loved one died. What matters is how the child is dealing with the death and the relationship the child had with the deceased. Children can have a grief reaction to a death that happened many years before. Because of the significant missing role of the loved one, the child may have a delayed grieving period as they come to understand how the absence affects their life.

  3. All of our Camp Hope campers had a great time with the horses today thanks to Kaleidoscope Learning Circle in Birch Run. They brought their horses out to us at Camp Lael.

    We caught up with some of our older campers!
