Camp Kangaroo is an annual children's day camp facilitated by AccentCare Hospice and the Seasons Hospice Foundation for anyone ages 5-17 who has lost a loved one. Campers engage in fun crafts and meaningful discussions to learn positive coping skills and connect with peers who have also experienced loss.

This year's camp will take place at the ARC Nature Coast Education Center on Saturday Nov. 2nd, and we need YOUR help!

Volunteers, or Roo Buddies, will be onboarded with AccentCare and receive training on children's grief and loss. Some responsibilities of Roo Buddies include:

  • Engaging campers in activities, conversations, games, or songs
  • Notifying a counsellor if a camper needs additional support
  • Accompanying a camper outside of the group (such as to the nurse, bathroom, etc)
  • Helping with set up/tear down
  • Putting together camper supplies
  • Registration and check-in
  • Serving lunch and snacks
  • Break time activities

Campers are broken up into groups based on age, so if there is a certain age group you prefer or have experience with, we will do our best to accommodate your request. For more information on Camp Kangaroo, or to register a camper, please visit https://seasonsfoundation.org/camp-kangaroo/.

See you at camp!
