Summer Camps for Grieving Children

Past President Bob Van Horn formed a steering committee to research the potential benefit of OFDA hosting Summer Grief Camps for children in Ohio. The Committee's findings concluded that several camps exist in Ohio, most of which are conducted by Hospice Organizations and having funeral homes offer their support to the existing camps was an appropriate utilization of OFDA Member's resources. To that end, we have requested the list of camps from Ohio Hospice and Pallative Care for your consideration. Please note this material was from 2005 events and may have changed for the 2006 season. We encourage you to contact the camp hosts directly, should you desire to support their efforts financially or with your gift of time.
