The East Cooper Outboard Motor Club Ladies Auxiliary donated $1,000 to Shannon's Hope Camp for bereaved children. The camp, a Bridges for End-of-Life program will be held Oct. 4 and 5 at Camp St. Christopher on Seabrook Island.
This weekend camp is an experience for children ages 6-15 residing in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties who have experienced the death of a loved one within the past two years. Through participation in fun, yet intense activities, campers are encouraged to speak openly about issues of death and grief.
Together they create friendships and support that allow them to identify and express their feelings in a safe, secure environment. It is a weekend of laughter, tears, sharing and remembering.
Bridges for End-of-Life provides information and resources through several bereavement initiatives for children and adults who are grieving the loss of a loved one and through educational and community awareness outreach for health care professionals, families and community groups.
