Thirty-three children who are dealing with grief from the loss of a loved one, are participating in the eighth annual Journey Grief Camp Thursday through Saturday.

The free program of Home Care Matters Health and Hospice, is held at Woodland Campground on State Route 19 south of Galion.

The children, ages 6 to 14, participate in activities and obstacle courses designed to help them come to terms with their loss.  

Home Health Matters Family Support Coordinator Brandon Quail says the camp gets results for most kids, although some need another visit and more time to heal.

The Journey Grief Camp was created by a Chaplain named Star Sanchez, and it has now served about three-hundred children.
