There is something very special that happens at Camp Riverbend after all of our campers and counselors are gone for the season. Camp Riverbend becomes Camp Clover for 1 week called Camp Clover. It is a bereavement day camp, sponsored by Atlantic Home Care and Hospice, to help children and teens deal with the loss of someone close to them.
Children ages seven to 15 are invited to participate. Camp Clover offers traditional summer camp programs like swimming, sports, and arts and crafts, as well as educational and therapeutic activities designed to assist children in their grieving process. Activities are planned to foster coping skills that children can use throughout their lives.
Camp Clover is run by trained staff and volunteers and is funded strictly by donations. The camp provides free bus transportation and lunch.
We think that it is a wonderful camp and we are proud that we have been a part of it for the past 2 summers. The Breene Family is being honored at the Atlantic Hospice Spring Gala 2014 with the Community Award and we humbly thank them for the recognition.
