Mayo Clinic Health System Hospice is hosting Camp Oz, a grief-support camp for children and teens, on Saturday, Oct. 1. The day-long camp will be held on Lake Washington in Madison Lake, Minnesota, and is for those ages 6 to 18 who have experienced the death of someone in their life. Participants will be able to share their feelings of grief and participate in remembrance activities. They also may connect with peers who have experienced loss. Activities include games, arts and crafts, music and small-group time to share about grief and loss. Numerous volunteers are needed to make the day possible, including those with a mental health background. If interested, email Jeanne Petroske-Atkinson at [email protected] or call the Hospice Department at 507-594-2989.
Camp Oz is offered free of charge. To register a child or teen, visit mayoclinichealthsystem.org and search for
