Good Grief Camp Canceled

May 27, 2020

Good Grief Day Camp, a bereavement support day camp for children ages 6-18 has been canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The camp was canceled due to concerns for the health and safety of the hospice volunteers and the children who attend the camp, which has been held every June for the last 20 years. Good Grief Day Camp will be held again in June 2021.

Guthrie Hospice is still a resource for children and adults who may be experiencing bereavement issues and have needs during these confusing and challenging times. For assistance, please call the Guthrie Hospice office at 570-265-8615 to speak to the bereavement coordinator or a social worker to address these needs.
