Teens who've lost a loved one can participate in a weekend retreat with Alive Hospice in October. Registration's limited and is now underway.
Being a teen is hard enough, but losing a loved one’s excruciating when you’re young.
Alive Hospice hosts its annual Alive Teen Retreat Oct. 16 – 18, and registration is now underway for limited spots.
The retreat — for kids in grades 9 – 12 — takes place at a lake-side camp in Rutherford County. Participants can make new friends while having fun with a variety of indoor and outdoor activities like canoeing, climbing, zip lining, playing sports and games, creating art projects and more.
The retreat includes Alive Hospice counselors and volunteers.
Cost is $50, and needs-based financial assistance is available. Registration is open through Thursday, Oct. 8 or until openings are full.
