A “Healing Circle” is a monthly support group specifically for children/teens who have lost a sibling or parent. Each event is centered on a therapeutic activity led by a licensed professional who provides children with the opportunity to engage in healthy activities and helpful discussions about their lost loved one.

The Details

Location: Genesee Waterways Center, 149 Elmwood Ave, Rochester, NY 14611

Date: Sunday, July 21 from 2-4pm

Includes: Join us for a group paddling (kayak or canoe) family outing!

Come at 2pm and paddle at your pace until 4pm in a kayak (single or tandem) or canoe. Just upstream on the Genesee River from the Genesee Waterways Center in the City of Rochester, you can experience the amazing four-way water intersection of the Genesee River and Erie Canal; you can also immerse yourself in the plant and animal life all around you in Red Creek. Just a few bends downstream from the Center, the skyline of downtown Rochester will appear dramatically before you!
