Camp Erin is the largest national bereavement program for youth who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Children and teens ages 6 to 17 participate in a weekend camp experience that combines grief education and emotional support with fun, traditional camp activities. Led by bereavement professionals and caring volunteers, campers are provided a safe environment to explore their grief, learn essential coping skills, and make friends with peers who are also grieving. Additional services are offered to support the whole family outside of the camp weekend. Through a network of partnerships with bereavement programs in local communities across the US and Canada, Camp Erin brings hope and healing to thousands of children and families annually and is offered at no cost to families.
In order to offer our campers the safest experience possible, Camp Erin 2020, hosted by Cancer Services, will go live over Zoom on Sunday, October 18, from 2:00-4:15PM. Things will be different, but we’re excited to offer brand new activities like you’ve never seen before, all while sharing stories and building coping skills the true Camp Erin way. Campers will receive a camp-in-a-box kit with all supplies needed for camp, including items for the whole family to enjoy!
