Annual Memorial Service

Hospice of the Rock River Valley hosts an annual memorial service typically in May. The service is a way to remember those loved ones whom we have lost during the previous year and carry their memory with us into the future. You do not have to have used hospice services to participate or attend.

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 usually held during the month of June.
