"Comfort Zone" Family Retreat
St. Catherine Hospice sponsors the "Comfort Zone" Family Retreat each October at Camp Lakeside in Scott City, Kansas. This retreat was recently selected as a finalist among community service programs by the American Hospital Association and is offered to assist families who are grieving the death of a significant person in their life.
Because grief is different and each person's coping skills are unique, conflict may arise within families. Grief experiences are influenced by the circumstances surrounding death, other losses experienced, emotional support systems, and cultural/religious backgrounds. The retreat weekend is designed to help families recognize these differences and encourage open and supportive conversation.
The weekend features sessions for adults, teens & children, giving participants tools to help them and their family as they walk their grief journey. Comfort Zone activities are based on helping individuals process grief, creating conditions that allow the bereaved to mourn through meaningful ceremonies and rituals coupled with celebrations, and fun in a natural environment.
Cost: $10 per family member (financial aid is available)
- 6 meals
- 2 nights lodging
Participants are limited. For more information and to register, contact us.
