  • Our Hospice of South Central Indiana: Canceling Camp Eva, A Bereavement Camp for Children ages 5-12

    Our Hospice of South Central Indiana is Canceling Camp Eva, A Bereavement Camp for Children ages 5-12 

     

    (August 31, 2021) Our Hospice of South Central Indiana is canceling Camp Eva, a half-day bereavement camp for children ages 5-12, originally scheduled for Saturday, September 18, 2021 at Columbus Youth Camp.  

    “In keeping with our priority of protecting the health and safety of the children and their families, we have made the disappointing decision to cancel Camp Eva due to the increased cases of Covid and increasing hospitalizations. Camp Eva is for children 5-12 and that is an age group that is not yet eligible for vaccinations. With the rise of the Delta variant, we are not willing to risk exposing these children and their families who have already suffered a loss of someone important to them,” said Laura Leonard, President of Our Hospice of South Central Indiana.

    “Bereavement staff will be reaching out to those families who have already registered to offer a Zoom Celebration of Life option, as well as invite them to Transformers, our monthly grief group held via Zoom for children and families,” continued Leonard.
