Hospice to offer Camp Jonathan

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 to 25 at St. John's Episcopal Church on Whittlesey Avenue in New Milford.

It provides a safe setting for children to express their grief and emotions through art, dance, crafts, music and discussion.

Bereaved area children are invited to take part; a special invitation is open to any children who may have been directly affected by the Sandy Hook tragedy.

For information and registration, call Mary Peitler at 860 354-2216.
