Riverthing makes appearance at Camp Bravehearts

CORDOVA, Tenn. - Mississippi RiverKings mascot RiverThing visited Camp BraveHearts in Cordova Wednesday morning to greet the kids as they arrived at camp for the day.

"We are so grateful RiverThing and was able to come out and interact with the kids this morning," said camp counselor and coordinator Mary Elizabeth Jones. "He was great to watch and I loved seeing the kids reactions as while he danced and played around with them. We sure hope to have him out next year and possibly get the RiverKings involved with other activities at the camp. 

In addition to greeting the campers as they arrived, RiverThing danced with the campers and participated in cornhole and frisbee.

Camp BraveHearts is a family grief day camp to help children ages 6-16 cope with the death of a family member or friend. This three-day camp, held annually in June, is a safe place where feelings of grief can be expressed. Trained professionals and volunteers explore issues related to grief with the children and their families. By sharing their grief with others, children and adults can begin to let go.
