Express Yourself

Healthy Coping Skills

To help children who have experienced a loss develop healthy coping skills, the YMCA of Greater Kansas City and Saint Luke’s Home Health and Hospice work together to offer Express Yourself Camp. Information on 2017 Express Yourself Camp will be coming soon.

Express Yourself camp is designed for kids who’ve experienced a loss or change, such as a death of a loved one, a divorce in the family, moving, the death of a pet, losing a home, a serious illness in the family or changing schools. Express Yourself Camp offers all-day activities, a safe environment for youth to express emotions associated with loss, and the support of professionally trained staff including grief counselors and volunteers. Small group activities will include music therapy, a multi-media project, physical activities, arts and crafts, skits and a closing ceremony. Campers will learn different ways to express their feelings of loss and to remember a loved one or a life change in a celebratory way.
