RUSH, Ky. — Camp Nabe is a three-day bereavement camp sponsored by Community Hospice based in Ashland and is designed for children ages 8 to 16 who have lost a sibling, parent, grandparent or another loved one.

Camp Nabe has been conducted each summer for the past 20 years, offering children a place to have fun, find peace and experience healing. Camp Nabe offers recreational activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, fishing and other fun activities along with counseling and therapy sessions conducted in a safe, supportive environment to help children with the process of healing from their loss.

The camp is free of charge and open to all children who have suffered a loss, not just those served by Community Hospice.

This year’s camp will be Tuesday, June 10 — Thursday, June 12 at Bear Creek Lodge in Rush. There are openings at this time, however, space is limited.

If you would like to have more information, or know a child who is grieving a loss, please call 1-606-329-1890 or 1-800-926-6184 and request an application packet.
