Retreat Helps Children Cope With Losses


Children between the ages of 7 and 12 who’ve suffered any kind of loss are being urged to attend the free Helping Hands Retreat at Camp Penuel in Eldred on Aug. 13-15.

To enable a child to attend the camp, call Bradford Regional Medical Center’s (BRMC’s) McKean County VNA & Hospice office at 814-362-7466 by Aug. 9.

“If you know of a child who has experienced the loss of someone close to them, or any other loss that is affecting them, encourage their family to call the VNA,” said Martha Dibble, RN-C, hospice coordinator for VNA & Hospice.

“We can accommodate 20 to 25 children at the sixth annual camp that’s filled with fun and meaningful activities,” said Mrs. Dibble.

Registration is open to all children, not just those who live in McKean County.
