Helping Hearts Heal activities planned so far include: fun and games, memory activities, group discussion, climbing wall, art activities, and an ice cream social.

The camp will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 17 at the Brookside Education Center, 211 W. Richway Dr., Albert Lea. For more information or registration materials call the Hospice Office at 507-377-6393. Registrations are due Friday, May 2.
