The ninth annual Children's Grief Camp is underway at Home Care Matters Home Health and Hospice in Galion. Twenty children who are suffering from the death of a loved one, and in some cases lashing out in anger, are attending the camp to learn how to better cope with their grief. This year's camp has a new Superheros format, with villains to defeat, including "Wilma Worrisome", which involves having children step inside a chamber with mirrors on each wall surrounding them to demonstrate how worries can be magnified far out of proportion. The grief camp also features inflated robots that are tempting to punch, but they're labeled with "father", "mother", "sister", "brother" and are not to be punched as a way of teaching the children not to take out their anger on family and friends, but to release it in appropriate ways. The Children's Grief Camp will feature a "maze of fear", and a Med-Flight helicopter, on Friday. Then on Saturday, the parents are invited to attend a one- hour session on how they can help their children overcome their grief, and for a family cook-out.
