Camp New Horizons
Helping children heal and gain strength through mourning.
Camp New Horizons is held on an October weekend for children who have lost a brother or sister to cancer or a blood disorder. Children from seven hospitals in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia participate in this unique camp which began in 1998. Camp New Horizons seeks to help children with the task of mourning. Through sharing their experience with children who have the same concerns, it is hoped that each child will gain strength as well as encouragement.
The focus of activities and interactions at Camp New Horizons is to assist each child in expressing his feelings, remembering the child who died, learning about grief, moving forward in life and building self-esteem. Children accomplish this by participating in music, art and other fun activities as well as educational sessions.
