Jaime's Tree House Day Camp
Jaime's Tree House is Hospice of Laurens County's Children's Bereavement Grief Camp. The program begins by identifying children in need of grief support. Through the help of our local school systems and by staying in contact with the families of former Hospice patients we are able to identify children that have lost a significant person in their lives and that loss has proven difficult. During camp the counselors will interact with the children through games, crafts, and other activities. The activities are designed in a way to allow the children to share their stories and experiences with grief. The camp gives them a safe place to voice their feelings and deal with their loss.
The Gospel Celebration is held in March. This event brings gospel groups of all kinds under one, local church to raise funds for Hospice of Laurens County's Charity Patient Program. During this event testimonials are often shared, offering education to attendees of the musical extravaganza.
Also during the month of November, Hospice of Laurens County host a Candle Lighting for the families of patients that have been served during the calendar year. This is an invitation event to honor patients and allow their families a special moment for their loved ones to be remembered.
