Thanks to the generosity of our community, Bluegrass Care Navigators offers a free bereavement camp to children in our service area who have lost a loved one in the past two years.
Camp Hope provides a safe environment for children to share stories about their loved one, express grief through coping activities, establish new friendships and, of course, have fun! Camp Hope is staffed by Bluegrass Care Navigators’ counselors, social workers, chaplains and other experienced volunteers.
