UPCOMING

Spring Kid's Time will take place for six consecutive Mondays, beginning April 3, and running through May 8. The camp is for children ages 6 through 12 who have experienced a significant loss, such as that of a parent, grandparent or sibling.

Through fun activities incorporating art, music, books and play, children will learn about and explore their grief with similar-aged peers who have had related experiences. This will help children discover feelings, memories and coping techniques for grief. They will gain tools for managing and effectively expressing grief in their everyday lives.

This camp is led by Mike Johnson, M.A.Ed., LPCC and Richelle Setordzie, M.A., LPC. Register children by calling the GriefCare Place at 330-686-1750 or email griefcareplace@att.net.
