HINSDALE – Adventist St. Thomas Hospice is seeking campers for its eighth-annual Tommy’s Kids Summer Camp, a children’s bereavement day camp.

Adventist St. Thomas Hospice offers support throughout the year for grieving children through Tommy’s Kids Support Group. Tommy’s Kids Summer Camp, designed for children ages 5 to 12, allows the hospice to serve an even larger population of kids.

Activities include nature hikes, arts and crafts, miniature golf, obstacle courses and water balloon battles. Campers will learn to express themselves through bereavement activities, such as journaling exercises, discussions on different types of feelings, puppet shows and a therapy dog visit.

The camp will take place daily from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. June 24 to 28 at Arabian Knights Farms, 6526 Clarendon Hills Road, Willowbrook. The cost is $50 per child, with some scholarships available.

Enrollment is limited to 30 children. For more information, call 630-856-6985.
