Camp Ray of Hope-Accepting Camper Registrations

Waterville -

WATERVILLE, Maine РCamp Ray of Hope (CROH) is accepting camper registrations for the September 16-18th session. CROH is a program of Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area held in Winthrop that is available to families and single people anywhere in Maine whose loved one has died from terminal illness or sudden unexpected death. The weekend retreat was founded as a statewide program in 1995 and brings grieving families together to learn new ways to cope with their losses, meet others with similar circumstances, remember special times, make new friends and to have some fun. At CROH, children write stories about their loved ones, draw pictures, participate in arts & crafts, go fishing/canoeing and on nature hikes. Campers learn healthy outlets for anger and self care techniques. Adults spend time with other adults in group settings and can also join the children in some activities. Child care is available on site for infants and toddlers. Cost is $60 per person and $180 for a family of three or more. Scholarships are available.  For more information, call 873-3615, ext.19.
