News Release, Calvert Hospice

Prince Frederick, MD – Each year, Calvert Hospice hosts Camp Phoenix, a day camp for children ages 7 – 15 who have lost a loved one. Due to current restrictions on group sizes, we have decided to move this year’s camp to September 12 – 13 and have discounted the cost to $60. Scholarships are available. Camp Phoenix will still be held at Kings Landing Park, and times will be announced soon. Camp Phoenix 2020 will offer many of the features that campers and volunteers enjoy each year. This program offers every child the opportunity to express his or her feelings of grief and loss in a supportive and understanding environment. In addition to traditional camp activities, including crafts and sports, children participate in group discussions and creative activities led by professional counselors and trained volunteers.
