By SouthFloridaReporter.com, Oct. 5, 2015 – COCONUT CREEK, Fla. – TrustBridge Health Bereavement Centers and Tomorrow’s Rainbow have announced a new partnership to support grieving children (ages 5-10) with an all-day camp named Club Seahorse.
TrustBridge Health Bereavement Centers provide special healing opportunities for grieving children through The Sea Star Program, which includes three different camp programs. The newest of these camp programs, Club Seahorse, will take place on Friday, October 23, at Tomorrow’s Rainbow in Coconut Creek.
“The purpose of Club Seahorse is to bring children, whose loved ones have died, together for support and friendship,” said Chelsea Johnson, Bereavement Manager, TrustBridge Health. “This innovative grief support program includes interactions with miniature horses and other small farm animals, peer support groups, therapeutic art and play.”
Throughout the day-long camp, children will have the opportunity to identify ways to cope with change, improve self-esteem, learn to recognize and validate feelings, identify safe ways to express grief, and to recognize that having fun and celebrating are still a part of life.
The Sea Star Program’s Club Seahorse is free of charge for all children who attend. To obtain an application, please visit http://hobc.org/news/club-seahorse. As space is limited, completed applications must be received by October 15.
