For families with school-aged children or teens who have lost a loved one, Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care and Solace House offers Camp Carousel. The free weekend retreat is open to the community and includes activities for children and parents or guardians. Families can have a therapeutic weekend together and spend time with others who have experienced similar losses.

Camp Carousel offers a mix of fun, recreational activities and structured creative opportunities to foster sharing and healing. The camp experience is designed for families who are several months past their loss at the time of camp.

Camp Carousel is a weekend retreat for children, teens and their families while Camp Erin is designed to serve children and teen participants only.

It features small group settings with trained professional staff, individual attention if desired, and opportunities for families to spend quality time together. Parents and guardians can learn more about parenting children who are grieving and communication.

Activities include:
  • Music
  • Art projects
  • Games
  • Campfire
  • Songs
  • Skits

The next Camp Carousel will be September 19-21, 2014. Sign up for more information. Or call the Camp Carousel Director at Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care, 816-363-2600, for an application or more information.
