Hope Is Possible Grief Camp

                                            C.A.R.E.S. Prevention
                                              6314 Corporate Court, Suite 100
                                                      Fort Myers, FL 33990

C.A.R.E.S.  Suicide Prevention  is a community-based program that empowers, educates
and  provides  awareness  to  professionals,  adults  and  youth.  C.A.R.E.S.  is  a  nonprofit
501c3.  We  are  the  only  suicide  prevention  and  awareness  organization  in  Southwest
Florida with a resource center.

It is with great pleasure C.A.R.E.S. once again is able to offer the children of Southwest
Florida  a  chance  to  participate  in  our  Hope  Is  Possible  Grief  Camp.  The  camp  is
tailored  for  children  ages 11 to 15  who are coping  with  grief  due to any type of loss in
their lives. Our goal is to help Southwest Florida youth build self-esteem, gain a sense of
belonging and become survivors.  
The  dates  for  our  Hope  Is  Possible  Grief  Camp  are  June  6-9  and  will  be  held  at
Westgate  River  Ranch.  C.A.R.E.S  will  have  a  licensed  therapist  and  social  workers  to
teach coping skills for managing the emotions associated with loss. Through participation
and  becoming  a  vital  member  of  a  team,  the  youth  will  learn  to  meet  challenges  and
obstacles with a spirit of adventure, discipline and perseverance. These virtues can last a
lifetime with our help and support.
C.A.R.E.S.  is  asking  for  your  help  in  reaching  out  to  these  young  people.  As  a  social
service provider in the community, you may come into contact with children or families
who would benefit from participation in our Hope Is Possible Grief Camp.

There  is  no  cost  to  parents  and  C.A.R.E.S  will  provide  transportation  to  and  from  our
Fort Myers office. The camp  has limited space  of 15 participants  and will be on a first
come, first served basis. If you need additional information, please do not hesitate to call
(239) 931-1200 or email
