Camp Erin

COVID-19 update for 2021

Planning for Camp Erin 2021 is in process and we are exploring ways to offer our programming safely. Our current hope is that we will be able to offer in-person day camps for small groups of campers.

We will be offering a variety of remote and virtual programs to support grieving children, teens, and families.

This page will be updated with new information as we move forward in our planning.

camp erin logoCamp Erin® is the largest network of free bereavement camps in the country designed for children and teens ages 6-17 who have experienced the death of someone close to them. 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.

Camp Erin® Portland was created and is supported in part by Eluna. For more information, please visit
