St. Catherine Hospice Invites Those Who Have Lost Loved Ones to Register for 2023 Comfort Zone Family Retreat

July 26, 2023

(Garden City, KANS.) St. Catherine Hospice invites those who are grieving the death of a loved one to register for the Comfort Zone Family Retreat to be held October 20-22 at Camp Lakeside in Scott City.

The mission of the Comfort Zone Family Retreat is to walk beside you as you experience your grief.  For over two decades, people from across the Midwest have traveled to attend the retreat, which focuses on these key goals:

  • Acknowledging the loss and the feelings surrounding the loss
  • Understanding that we are not alone in our grief
  • Educating families on coping and survivor skills
  • Encouraging families to be open and supportive within their own family unit

Grief is a natural part of life and a process that needs to be experienced fully.  Because each person’s grief and coping skills are unique, conflict and hard feelings often arise within families going through bereavement.  Comfort Zone Family Retreat is designed to recognize these differences and encourage families to be open and supportive. The activities offered over the weekend are accommodated to benefit children, teens and adults.

The retreat requires the family to participate by staying on site from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon.  The number of participants is limited, so register early.
