At Guardian Angel Hospice and Guardian Angel Foundation we believe in the importance of raising awareness of end-of-life care and grief and loss in the community. We understand that comfort during life’s final journey does not end for the family with the death of a loved one. We value the opportunity to reach out and touch our community in several different ways.
The Butterfly Run is a 5k walk/timed run. This event will raise awareness of grief and loss while offering community members a forum to honor and remember their loved ones who have passed away. The Butterfly Run will also raise funds for Camp Angel and other family bereavement services.

When children and adolescents are faced with the death of a loved one, the support necessary to guide them through the journey is one that is somewhat different than that of an adult. Children and adolescents process situations and events much differently than adults. They may not realize that it is normal and natural to feel the way they do during the grief process. Grief may take longer to heal as their development and understanding of death changes as they grow.
Camp Angel is designed to assist children and adolescents with this process and provide them a meaningful, healing and enjoyable experience. Camp provides the opportunity to meet other campers, like themselves, who are learning about and understanding their grief. It’s nice to know you are not the only one.
Camp Angel also allows the campers to run, play, laugh, be themselves, and have a great time (which is also very normal in the grief process)! No matter what level of grief a camper is at, they are understood and accepted.
Camp Angel Teen Retreat – A special 3 day weekend retreat for middle school and high school students in grades 6 – 12. Teen targeted activities are offered to provide a meaningful, healing and enjoyable experience and to meet the needs of this growing and maturing age group, while they are dealing with a loved one’s death. Teens are taught healthy ways to grieve and remember their loved ones that fit their individual needs. Outdoor camping activities on site are also available, as well as, all meals for the 3 days. Transportation is provided from Lafayette and Kokomo to Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, IN.
