Why is this event important for your children?
Campers will learn that they are not alone in their feelings of grief or their anxiety about the ways their lives have changed. Children will be taught that the process of grieving is not forgetting their loved one but remembering with less pain. Campers learn to express the feelings, improve communication, and learn coping skills to deal with current and future losses.
Camp Caterpillar is offered each September in Stockton, CA. All activities are led by Hospice of San Joaquin grief staff as well as grief Volunteers. Certified Pet therapy dogs are available throughout the day for campers to enjoy!
