Patches made by camp attendees to represent their memories of lost loved ones rests on a table of crafts during Courage Camp, a camp for grieving children ages 6-13, who have recently lost a loved one. The camp gives children an opportunity to explore their feelings along side others while in a safe, and fun environment. "When you can reach a child this young, it can change their life," said Grief Support Manager Mary Ann Green. Started in 1995, Camp Courage is now in it's 19th year.
