Jessica’s House Third Annual Summer Day Camp to Skyrocket Spirits

Because grief comes in all sizes, Jessica’s House is hosting a summer day camp for children who have experienced the loss of a parent or sibling.

Jessica’s House is a place for grieving children, teens, young adults, and families to share their experiences through art, talking, and play.

“Research shows that children who don’t have a place to express themselves in loss don’t do as well in life, and we know events such as these make a difference,” said Erin Nelson, the executive director of Jessica’s House. “We want to support grieving families to help create a healthier and more compassionate community.”

The third annual event welcomes children ages 5 to 12 for a variety of space themed group activities to create an environment of support, trust and openness.

The daylong event on July 23 is $10 per camper, which includes all camp gear, activities and lunch. A closing ceremony, including parents, guardians or caregivers, brings Thursday’s event to a close.

“Jessica’s House is based on the model of peer support,” said Nelson. “It creates a safe place where children learn they are not alone.”

The non-profit event is scheduled to have adult and teen volunteers to help in the day’s activities.

“We are solely funded by the generosity of donors in the community. If it weren’t for the volunteers and donors, this event would not be possible,” said Nelson.

"You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends. Polyester often dries quickly, making it the perfect fabric for intense workouts."
  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
