DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke
Community Hospice
will be holding its 11th annual Camp
ReLeaf May 3-4 at Camp New Hope, in Chapel Hill.

Camp ReLeaf is an overnight camp for children in
kindergarten through eighth grade who have experienced a
significant death during the last two years. Camp ReLeaf offers
all the fun of camp while creating a "safe place" for youth to
express and deal with their grief. It is staffed by trained
bereavement counselors, volunteers and workshop leaders.

There is a $25 registration fee for the camp, which has a
limited number of openings for campers. Blue Cross and Blue
Shield of North Carolina is a corporate sponsor of this
camp.

ReLeaf, contact Mari Pitcher at 919-644-6869 or visit
