Camp Erin

COVID-19 update

Due to COVID-19 we have made the difficult decision to cancel in-person events for summer 2020. This decision did not come lightly as we recognize the importance of Camp Erin in our community. However, we value the health and safety of our campers and volunteers and could not foresee proceeding with activities as normal during the pandemic.

We will be offering many alternate activities and supports for registered campers and families including art kits, activities, peer connections, group video chats, and more.

It is a weekend-long experience filled with traditional, fun camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support – led by grief professionals and trained volunteers. Camp Erin provides a unique opportunity for peer bonding between children and teens facing a similar life circumstance. Camp Erin is offered free to all families.
