Camp Good Mourning
Camp Good Mourning is the highlight of the year for Kate’s Club members and volunteers! This special bi-annual gathering brings kids together in a traditional camp setting to enjoy activities, friendship and to learn how to deal with their grief in a positive way.
At Camp Twin Lakes in Winder, Georgia, kids swim, hike, rock climb, play music, make arts and crafts and attend the annual camp dance.
Children also participate in grief support activities which support sharing their loss with their peers and learning new ways to cope with their feelings.

Kate’s Club meets at Northeast Georgia Hospice on Saturday morning each month to offer social, recreational and therapeutic activities to Kate’s Club members living in the Northeast Georgia area. The child must go through the same application and interview process prior to the first program at the Gainesville clubhouse as they would if they were attending programs at the primary clubhouse.
