Annual Memorial Service

Camp Love N Loss
Camp Love n Loss is a unique and innovative one day summer camp program designed specifically for children ages 6-13 who have suffered the loss of a loved one. A mixture of fun activities, including games, discussions and focused arts and crafts, allows children to express feelings and concerns, identify supportive people, and find appropriate ways to use memories for healing and growth; with the theme of offering true HOPE for their future. Camp is free of charge to all and is typically held during the month of June.
Counselors help camp attendees make Memory Boxes that they can fill with items reminding them of good memories of their loved one. (Camp June 6, 2013)
There is no charge for any of our grief support programs and groups/workshops are open to our Hospice families and our community members.
Individuals can purchase ornaments in honor of or in memory of a loved one. These ornaments are available at the Hospice of the Rock River Valley office. Order Form
