Camp Willow Creek is a place where children and teens can find comfort and hope. It is designed for young people ages six to 16 who have lost a loved one due to death in the past two years. The child must have turned six years old by January 1, 2013. This years camp will be held June 21-24, 2013.
Camp provides a safe haven for these precious people to come together and share their pain, struggles, tears, hopes, and dreams.
Camp Willow Creek's mission is to facilitate a child's journey through grief in a safe, supportive, and healing environment.
Camp Willow Creek is staffed by trained volunteers through Gateway Hospice. Nurses are available on site, if needed.
A wonderful aspect of Camp Willow Creek is that there is no cost to the participant. Round-trip transportation is also provided free. Camp is sponsored by Gateway Hospice and funded by the Gateway Medical Center Volunteer Auxiliary.
