Calvary Hospital Hosts 18th Annual Bereavement Camp
Date:9/1/2015

From Aug. 17-21, Calvary Hospital hosted the 18th consecutive session of its bereavement camp for 86 children and teenagers, from ages 6-18. Calvary’s Camp Compass® has taken place at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn in each of the past three years. The camp staff included 65 adult counselors, some of whom work for Calvary, and two junior counselors who were campers themselves just a few years ago.

The campers enjoyed traditional activities such as swimming, fishing, and basketball. They also enjoyed other activities this year including the following:

  •     Making small wooden see-saws to remember the person that each camper lost
  •     Therapy dog visits
  •     Obstacle courses
  •     BBQ lunch and dance party
  •     Guitar and piano lessons
  •     Comic book artistry and scrapbooking
  •     Two Big Apple Circus clowns

Calvary’s Camp Compass® provided a safe, nurturing environment for the children of diverse backgrounds to validate feelings, offer hope, and have fun for the week. All of the campers attend the hospital’s year-round bereavement programs — “Precious Moments” — for young children ages 6 to 11 or the teen bereavement support group for 12- to 18-year-olds. These groups, which meet at the hospital in the Bronx and downtown Brooklyn, have helped hundreds of children with their grief process. All groups are free and open to the community.

Supporters of the hospital’s children’s bereavement programs and Calvary’s Camp Compass® have included but are not limited to: Newman's Own Foundation, Eileen T. Nugent, the Peter Jay Sharp Foundation, the van Ameringen Foundation, the George Link, Jr. Foundation, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Thomas & Agnes Carvel Foundation, Robert Mize and Isa White Trimble Foundation, and the Hagedorn Fund.

In the New York Metropolitan area, Calvary Hospital has established itself as a resource for grieving families. It offers free bereavement support groups for adults, children, and teens, and referrals for additional support if necessary. Calvary offers three unique groups: one geared toward the needs of young adults ages 18-25; one for men of all ages; and a psychotherapy group for adults who have already attended a previous bereavement support group.

Calvary’s bereavement program is available to anyone who has lost a loved one, whether that person was a patient at Calvary, or someone from the larger community whose death was attributable to illness, accident, or violence.
