Camp Amanda helps answer kids' questions about grief and death in new webinar
October 21, 2021
WALLA WALLA—The Camp Amanda Leadership Team & Walla Walla Community Hospice have organized An Evening Where Kids Ask the Questions, a Q&A style webinar to be held on Zoom, Thursday, November 4th at 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm.
Children can submit their questions anonymously before or during the webinar. Those questions will be answered by a panel of community members and professionals, including a doctor, trauma nurse, EMT/firefighter, police officer, funeral director, pastor, social worker, and those who have also experienced loss as a child.
Parents or guardians must register the children who wish to participate and are encouraged to participate in the webinar. Only the panel members will be visible on-screen during the webinar, not the participants.
Camp Amanda is an annual summer camp for children grieving the loss of a significant person in their life. The camp has been in operation for 37 years but has not been able to meet in person since 2019. The 2020 camp was a multi-day virtual event. The 2021 camp was postponed in July due to increased Covid infection rates and forest fires. The October date was canceled due to high infection rates. Knowing the great need for support for grieving children, camp leaders developed this new online support program.
