Beacon employees volunteered at Camp BraveHeart on August 2nd in North Scituate, RI.

Every summer for the last 12 years, Home & Hospice Pallatative Care of Rhode Island, a Beacon policyholder, sponsors Camp BraveHeart, a free, two day summer camp for kids and teens who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

Campers take part in fun, traditional activities such as swimming, kayaking, archery, rock climbing, gardening and storytelling. Grief counselors lead discussions and opportunities to memorialize loved ones during art, music, theater and drum circle activities. The camp concludes with a butterfly release and a remembrance ceremony.

Beacon volunteers were inspired by the stories of these children and families. This was part of Beacon’s commitment to supporting the Rhode Island community.
