When a child loses a loved one, who do they turn to? What feelings go through their young minds? When a family feels broken or torn apart after the death of a child, what can we do to help them in their grieving process? When a spouse is searching to find some sense of normalcy in the world after their “other half” dies, where do they go?

To help answer these questions, Baptist Trinity Hospice created the Mid-South's first grief camp—Camp Good Grief—in 1999. Camp Good Grief grew into a camp for teen’s in 2001, a camp for adults in 2003 & a comprehensive Grief Center in 2005. We have also shared our experience and knowledge with others outside Shelby County. In 2001, we help Schneider Children’s Hospital start Camp Hope after the attacks on our country on 9-11. In 2008, we also assisted a hospice in Alaska crate Camp Mend-A-Heart.

The goal of the free annual bereavement camps is to give area children, teens and adults—an enjoyable, accepting and supportive environment in which they can freely express their feelings about the loss of a loved one. The camp is made possible by a grant from the Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation, The Junior League of Memphis and many other donors and friends.

Under the guidance of professional bereavement staff, campers have the opportunity to meet with other children who have experienced similar losses, and to engage in activities involving art, music and recreation through which they can explore their grief. Support groups are also a part of the day camp, enabling the children to explore their grief. The Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief operates all 3 camps, but also provides free individual grief counseling to children, teens and adults throughout the year.

So, how can you help?

Join us for our 3rd Annual 5K, 1 mile family fun walk and the Yellow Balloon Bike Parade.

This event centers around the theme of remembrance, celebration, and recognizing departed loved ones - as many of the attendees are alumni and friends of Camp Good Grief

The Camp Good Grief 5k will be a family fun event you will want to put on your calendar this year and years to come. We will have Moon Bounces, Face Painting, and games for the kids. Grilled Hamburgers, cotton candy, and yummy treats will be served along with soft drinks and bottled water. Holiday Deli and Ham will also be on hand to show you 101 ways to use Pimento Cheese. This is truly an event for the entire family.

The Yellow Balloon Bike Safety Parade for children ages 3 to 10 years old. Bring your bike, wagon, or big wheel. *Helmets are REQUIRED* Decorate your bike helmet with flowers, arts, crafts, ribbons, stickers, or whatever you like.

Learn bike safety tips from Los Locos Triathlon Team Members.

The Yellow Balloon Parade will start at approximately 3:15. The goal of the Yellow Balloon Bike Safety Parade is to stress the importance of wearing bike helmets for ADULTS and CHILDREN alike. Everyone should wear a bike helmet, no matter the circumstance.

THE YELLOW BALLOON PARADE is held in memory of Cy Robinson. The event’s mission is to provide bike safety training to young people just like Cy, especially teaching them about the importance of a helmet. Cy’s brother, Hart Robinson, is a competitive biker with the Los Locos Triathlon Team who strives to pass on these life lessons.

So, you don’t run? No big deal! This is a family fun event…..join us! Help us remember those who we love! Make a donation! Help me raise $5,000 so WE can send 5 children to camp. These camps and the Center for Good Grief are here for our entire community – help us raise money so that we may continue to help those who are grieving.

We are so grateful to our 5K sponsors: Pugh’s Flowers, Pugh’s Earthworks, Holiday Ham and Deli, and Memorial Park Funeral Home and Cemetery.
