I will be volunteering at Camp Ray of Hope this year, and I'll be offering a "Writing through Grief" workshop as part of the programming. Writing and journaling can be incredibly helpful tools when we are living through the loss of a loved one, and this workshop is designed to help participants explore different writing techniques.
Camp Ray of Hope is a weekend retreat for individuals and families from Maine who are grieving the death of a loved one. Childcare and scholarships are available.
