Lakewood Retreat Center
HPH Hospice offers the annual Camp REACH OUT weekend for children in Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Camp will be held Friday, March 1 to Sunday, March 3, 2019 at the Lakewood Retreat Center in Brooksville (35 miles north of Tampa). Transportation to camp is provided from HPH Hospice’s offices. Campers will reunite with their families for the closing ceremony on Sunday and will return home together. The camp is situated in a rustic, wooded setting with secure, comfortable cabins and well-prepared meals and snacks are provided daily.
HPH Hospice recognizes the special needs of children grieving the death of a loved one and has created Camp REACH OUT (which stands for Remembering Everything About Coping, Hope, Openness, Understanding and Trust). This weekend camp for children, ages 5 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.
If you’re interested in volunteering at Camp REACH OUT, please visit the Children’s Camp Volunteers page for more information and to complete the volunteer application.
