The loss of a loved one is hard on those who are left behind, as one navigates the grief that naturally follows a death. Whether one is grieving on their own or within a family system, they deserve a safe space to share on their journey after loss. To answer this need from the community, Hospice Atlanta founded the bereavement retreat called Camp STARS (Sharing Together As Real Support) in 1994, the first bereavement camp of its kind in Georgia. This three-day retreat is set on a gorgeous 300-acre campus where individuals can feel the peace and safety, allowing the expression of their emotions along side others who are in a similar situation and share many of the same strong feelings.

The camp is staffed by experienced, nurturing counselors, social workers, chaplains and trained volunteers who guide everyone through the grieving process. It’s a chance to let go for the weekend, bond with family members, and make new friends. There are plenty of opportunities for enlightenment, spirituality, learning and just plain fun.

Camp STARS is located at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, Georgia and takes place in November each year. There are comfortable, homey cabins, gathering areas and classroom-like settings, all surrounded by an abundance of peace and nature. The only cost is a minimal administrative fee which covers registration for each person that is registered under one family (individuals determine who is in their family unit). Families/individuals can attend regardless of their ability to pay, and they did not have to be in the care of Hospice Atlanta. It’s all made possible by the generosity of The Junior League of Atlanta, The Cardinal Rock Charitable Foundation, and other community donations.
