The Elizabeth Hospice Brings Camp to Community’s Grieving Children and Teens

Camp Spero At Home is Free for Kids Ages 7 to 17


San Diego youth who are coping with the death of a special person in their life can find support and comfort at Camp Spero At Home, an online, weekend grief camp hosted by The Elizabeth Hospice August 7-9, 2020. Deadline for registration is July 20.
Camp Spero At Home is a weekend camp experience filled with creative, interactive ways for children to share stories, meet other kids who are sharing similar experiences and have lots of fun. Each camper will receive a camp toolbox filled with supplies. Access to the internet and audio and video capabilities are required. There is no cost to attend and the camp is open to all children, ages 7 to 17, in San Diego County and Southwest Riverside County.
Based on the Latin phrase, Dum Spiro Spero, “While I breathe, I hope,” Camp Spero campers will engage in grief-related activities, learn healthy coping skills and make friends with other kids who are facing similar circumstances.

“We are deeply committed to caring for the children of San Diego County and Southwest Riverside County,” said Sarah McSpadden, Chief Executive Officer of The Elizabeth Hospice. “To ensure the safety and well-being of our community’s children during the pandemic, we’re bringing camp to them. The Camp Spero At Home experience will help grieving children increase their feelings of hopefulness, enhance their self-esteem and learn they are not alone.”
