Camp Koala Accepting Campers

— CARLISLE — Camp Koala is currently accepting campers for its no-cost camps for grieving children and teens. Children ages 7-12 and teens 13 and older who have experienced the death of a parent, primary caregiver or sibling are invited to apply for the May 30-June 1 camps at the Carlisle YMCA’s Camp Thompson. Each camper is paired with an adult “Big Buddy”, and participates in a variety of activities, including art therapy, music/percussion, dance/movement, and pet therapies, along with traditional camp activities such as campfires, archery, canoeing and hiking.
