One Last Hug (--and A Few Smooches)
Three Days at Camp GriefDVD - 2014
More than 1.5 million children in America are grieving the premature loss of a parent. The Emmyʼ-nominated documentary One Last Hug follows three heartbreaking but ultimately empowering days at Camp Erin, a bereavement camp that offers children who lost loved ones the support they need to deal with their grief. Founded by baseball great Jamie Moyer in memory of Erin Metcalf, a fan who died of cancer at 17, the free, weekend-long retreat is staffed by grief-support professionals and volunteers. Through group meetings, walks in the woods, and a scavenger hunt for rocks painted with words like 'Anger' and 'Confused', campers are encouraged to come out of their shells and process their emotions, sharing their feelings with other grieving kids.
