Special camp helps kids cope with their parent's injuries
EDMONTON -- A special graduation ceremony was held in Sherwood Park on Sunday afternoon for the Wounded Warriors Canada Warriors Kids Camp.
The camp benefits children of a parent living with an operational stress injury.
It helps them learn to talk about their parent’s injuries and develop new coping skills.
“We've dedicated a whole program to helping kids learn about feelings, and emotions, and really the idea that talking about mental health should be just as important as attending a hockey camp or go learn additional math skills,” said Camp Director Helena Hawryluk.
This is the second year the two-day camp has been held. Twenty campers participated in the graduation ceremony.
