Galyn Woerner, Camp Agape's Camp Director explained how Camp Agape helps children in the bereavement process.
 
Explaining the intricate mixture of fun, group therapy, counseling, singing and other activities at the Camp, Galyn made clear the benefit of the bereavement camp. 
 
Camp Agape enjoyed a new venue for the 2014 camp ‚Äč 
 
that accommodated the large number of different activities   such as making memory boxes. The camp was held this year at the Glen Lake Camp and Retreat Center in Glen Rose and expects to return there next year, according to Woerner.
 
Pulling off camp requires approximately a 3:1 ratio of adults to children who are ages 7 to 12. Special assistance comes from a cadre of "high school helpers," a group of truly special high school students who are constantly working in the background.
 
Children who have lost a parent, sibling or other person close to them are eligible to attend the 4-day camp without charge. Relying almost totally on volunteers and donations, Woerner is the only paid employee. A 5k run is being held on November 15 this year as a fund-raiser for Camp Agape in preparation for next year's crop of grieving children who will begin to learn to deal with bereavement.
