What's The WeEkend About?
Above all - it's a chance for bereaved dads to get into a game or two and get things off their chest. The weekend is a way to release some stress, talk openly about grief and learn new coping skills with a bunch of guys that understand.
We’ll be doing some grief work with a difference. It’s geared up to be social, with heaps of outdoor activities as well as informal chats on topics you’re all close to. The peer support side of things allows dads to come together, share their stories and find coping strategies under the supervision of a counsellor.
Bears of Hope will cover the cost of food and accommodation, plus transport (if not within driving distance). All we ask is a $50 commitment fee (non-refundable) to secure your spot. This weekend is open to bereaved dads or bereaved dads and a male support.
