Camp Lighthouse: A Beacon of Hope for Grieving Families

October 14, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The VB Strong Center in partnership with Sentara healthcare cordially invites you to a Sentara sponsored program.

Camp Lighthouse is a two-day camp for children and teens dealing with the loss of a loved one. Trained professionals and volunteers help children and their families explore issues related to grief, walking beside them as they take the steps needed to heal.

The camp is for children from kindergarten through teens and young adults who have experienced the death of a close family member or loved one in the past two years. Parents, grandparents and caregivers are also encouraged to participate in their own adult group.

Contact Camp Lighthouse
