Circle F. Dude Ranch
Good Shepherd Hospice offers the annual Camp Brave Heart weekend for children in Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Camp will be held Friday, April 5 to Sunday, April 7, 2019 at the Circle F. Dude Ranch in Lake Wales. Round-trip transportation is provided for all campers from Auburndale and Sebring to the campsite via chartered bus. Camp is situated in a rustic, wooded setting with secure, comfortable cabins. Well-prepared meals are provided and served daily.
Good Shepherd Hospice recognizes the special needs of children grieving the death of a loved one and has created Camp Brave Heart. This weekend camp for children, ages 6 to 17, helps those who have recently lost a loved one share their feelings of loss with others. The experience combines healing with fun, letting children know that life still has a lot to offer.
Applications will be available soon, and the deadline is Friday, March 15, 2019. If you would like more information, please contact the Good Shepherd Hospice Bereavement Department at 863.968.1707 or 1.800.753.1880.
