Camp Dragonfly to be Held June 11, 2016

Lewiston, Maine 6.6.16 – Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice’s Camp Dragonfly will be held on Saturday, June 11, 2016 at Tripp Lake Camp in Poland. Camp Dragonfly runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm. The last day to pre-register is June 8th. Pre-registration is required by calling Bereavement Coordinator, Amy Dulac at 795-9468.

Camp Dragonfly is a one-day retreat designed to bring together grieving children, teens and supportive people in their lives to deal with the loss of a loved one.

Specially trained counselors and volunteers provide a caring environment to help meet the unique needs of grieving children, teens and adults. The camp activities offer opportunities for both therapeutic experiences and education about the grief process. Camp Dragonfly is also prepared to support children who have not yet experienced a loss but are living with a family member with a terminal illness.

The goal of the one day camp is to offer assistance to youth who have experienced a loss and to help families feel comfortable having those difficult conversations with their children and other family members about death and loss. Camp Dragonfly is free to attend and open to the community.

“It showed me that I was not alone,” states Brianna, a Camp Dragonfly participant, “and that other people were grieving too”.
