Mayo Clinic Health System Hospice is hosting Camp Oz on Saturday, Oct. 3 at Camp Patterson on Lake Washington in Madison Lake from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. to help support children and teens who have lost loved ones.

Camp Oz is a day-long grief camp for children and teens, ages 6 to 18, who have experienced the death of someone in their life. Children are able to share their feelings of grief and participate in remembrance activities. They also have an opportunity to connect with others who have experienced loss, helping participants understand they’re not alone.

Activities at Camp Oz include: Fun and games, arts and crafts, new friendships, music, family barbecue, group discussion, outdoor activities, closing ceremony.

Because of the generosity of many individuals donating to Mayo Clinic Health System Hospice, Camp Oz is offered free of charge. We ask that one registration form per child be submitted prior to participating in the camp.

Registration is free and open until Sept. 18. For more information or registration materials, call 507-385-2989 or 800-327-3721, ext. 2989 (toll-free). Visit mayoclinichealthsystem.org to learn more about Mayo Clinic Health System.
