GRIEVING children from Bromsgrove's Primrose Hospice took part in a fun-filled activity camp in the Malvern Hills.

A group of 17 youngsters, five of whom are being supported by Primrose, enjoyed a night walk, zip wire and a musical jungle rave at Outdoor Elements, followed by a poignant ceremony to remember their loved ones.

Children also took part in therapeutic activities including arts and crafts, and a GP attended to answer their medical questions.

Lisa Rodenhurst, children and young people's practitioner at Primrose, said: "For me, camp is about giving a positive experience to our children and young people.

“I feel very privileged to be part of this experience and often leave camp feeling humbled by the children’s strength, courage and determination.”

Fellow practitioner Sharon Workman added: "Camp is both exhilarating and exhausting and for me it is a privilege to spend time in the company of such wonderful children and young people.

“They share stories about their experiences of bereavement remember their loved ones with sadness but also with hope and joy.

“It is a weekend filled with life, love and friendships.”

The KEMP for Kids camp is organised jointly with KEMP Hospice in Kidderminster to bring together children experiencing the loss of a family member. A separate camp is held at the same time for adults.
