WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Lower Cape Fear LifeCare has announced that it will host two sessions for its Camp Voyager program in June, with the aim of helping grieving children cope with loss in healthy ways.

According to the announcement, the first camp session is intended for second through fourth graders and will be held from June 19 to 22 at Lower Cape Fear LifeCare’s Philips Counseling & LifeCare Center. Camp will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the center, located at 1414 Physicians Drive in Wilmington.

The second session will be held from June 26 to 29 and from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Philips Counseling & LifeCare Center. The second camp session is intended for fifth to seventh graders.

“Camp Voyager is an opportunity for young people who have experienced the death of someone special,” states a release from Lower Cape Fear LifeCare. “At camp, we will play, laugh, create, make friends and take time to remember the people we know who have died. Campers will meet other children facing similar circumstances, honor the lives of those who have died, learn and laugh, and believe in their own value and the value of their experiences.”

Camp sessions are free to attend, but those interested in participating will need to complete and submit a registration form. The form can be found here, and after receiving the completed form, a LifeCare counselor will discuss the appropriateness of the program with the family.
