Camp Erin is an annual weekend camp for grieving children, ages 6-17 yrs. There are only 60 spaces, total, available for campers….and they want to fill every one with children and teens who are grieving the loss by death (recent or not-so-recent) of a special person in their lives. Here are several good reasons why the camp can help with their healing, and bring them the opportunity for a happy and healthy life:

-  grief activities to promote memory-making and understanding of personal resources to help them with their grief
-  peer support to normalize their grief process
-  trained volunteers and professional staff

Also, please note:

-  no charge to families!
-  no school is missed (it’s a weekend camp)

Note: Camp Erin will take place at Birchwood Camp on the weekend of October 7, 8 and 9, 20ll: although it seems far away, it is not too early for campers to apply!  Once students return this coming fall, many or most of the camper spots may be taken.  Please apply by the end of this school year!
