New Milford Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice is accepting registration for its free bereavement day camp for children and teens.
Camp Jonathan, now in its 20th year, is open to children ages 6 to 18 who have experienced the loss of a loved one through death.
The camp will be offered July
21-25 at St. John's Episcopal Church
on Whittlesey Avenue in New
It provides a safe setting for children to express their grief and emotions through art, dance, crafts, music and discussion.
Area children are invited to take part in the camp; a special invitation is open to children who may have been directly affected by the Sandy Hook tragedy.
