Bob Sweeney's Camp H.O.P.E.is a free 2 day bereavement camp which takes place annually in July. Our camp provides children and teens, ages 5-17, the opportunity to come together to not only learn new ways of coping with grief and to meet other children and families who have experienced similar losses but to also normalize the grief experiences. Research suggests that bereavement camps are effective in helping bereaved children and their families develop and build resilience in dealing with their loss. This camp is offered to both English and Spanish speakers. If you should ahve any questions or would like an application, please call Maribeth McKeever LCSW-R @ (631) 828-7628.
