Alive Hospice Teen Retreat

High-school students experiencing grief due to the death of a loved one can find peer support and encouragement through a weekend retreat with Alive Hospice.

In addition to providing hospice care to Middle Tennessee families, the charitable non-profit Alive Hospice provides grief support services to adults and children across the mid-state.

Among the grief support offerings Alive Hospice provides is its annual Alive Teen Retreat taking place every October. This year, it’s from Oct. 21 – 23 located at a lakeside camp in nearby La Vergne (Rutherford County). It’s open to high-school students in grades 9 – 12 who have lost loved ones.

During the weekend retreat, participants can enjoy a variety of fun activities like campfires, artistic/creative projects, canoeing, a high ropes course, climbing tower, sports and games, and more.

In addition, teens will be able to bond with each other through shared grief and find support in each other.

The Alive Hospice Teen Retreat costs $50, which includes lodging and meals. Financial assistance is available. To register, call 615-346-8680 or visit alivehospice.org.
