Dear Counselors, Social Workers, and other Friends of Camp MAGIK,
Camp MAGIK, a healing camp for bereaved children and adolescents, is announcing its spring 2019 camp sessions. Our spring sessions will be held at The Calvin Center in Hampton April 12-14, 2019 and at The Cherokee Retreat Center in Cartersville May 3-5, 2019. Applications need to be postmarked, emailed, or faxed to us no later than April 3 and April 24 respectively. We will provide free transportation to camp and back – if needed.
Camp MAGIK is well suited to all youth ages 7 through 18 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or other close loved one, especially youth who have experienced traumatic death. Professional bereavement counselors, trained in grief and trauma, lead all counseling sessions. This will be our 25th year providing this evidence based service to the community.
There is also a retreat available for adults who want to process their own grief with other adults who are grieving – please see attachment.
Our camp sessions are FREE OF CHARGE to all participating children and adolescents. Please share this information/announcement with families you feel may benefit from this FREE service for bereaved children and with other professionals as you see fit. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
