Grief Takes a Hike Camp — August 2-4

Our annual weekend adventure, Grief Takes a Hike, is designed for families who have experienced the death of a family member or other significant individual. This unique weekend allows families to experience the therapeutic value of nature – sharing and processing feelings while enjoying indoor and outdoor activities, like relaxing at the beach or by the campfire, exploring nature, and participating in crafts and even family relay races.

For more information on the GTAH weekend, contact Jill Thorson at jthorson@fvhh.net, or at 630.232.2233 x 225.
