Camp Coral

Camp Coral, established in 1991 by HospiceCare of Southeast Florida, is a complimentary overnight camp providing a safe setting to assist children with their grief and dealing with a death of a loved one. Camp Coral is entirely run by HospiceCare staff and qualified volunteers. It is open to children from 6 13 of age from Broward, Miami, and Monroe counties. An additional highlight is the reunion, held 6 -8 weeks after camp where everyone receives "Conch Tales", a Camp Coral yearbook.

Campers will enjoy many instrumental and interactive activities this camp which will include a butterfly release, beach games, pizza parties, art therapy and so much more.

Camp Coral is a rewarding experience for both the children who attend and for the volunteers, many of whom have never experienced an overnight camp. "We welcome children to this therapeutic camp if they have experienced a loss of a loved one, for it is not limited to a Hospice loss. It is extremely rewarding to see many of the past years camp participants come back as teen volunteer. We have seen so much progress from these children and have promoted their growth through scholarships in the past," said Susan G. Telli, CEO.

HospiceCare is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing physical, emotional and spiritual care to individuals and their families coping with end of life decisions.
