Summer Day Camp.
Our second grieving kids summer daycamp is this week. The first one in July went better than I hoped. This one has started out great as well, with our first day ending with a drum circle outside on the grass. Today should be just as good, if not better. Great group, great families, great facilitators!
But I hate this week as well. It takes a huge amount of planning & implementation to execute. I hate we do this because it means these kids are in so much pain. At the same time, the growth we see is incredible. The friendships that form, the free play that happens, the healing that starts as they journey through this grief, in a safe place we have created.
Worth all the work to see those happy faces at the end of the week!
