They have a safe environment to express themselves with other children going through a similar experience.

Camp Facilities




Grief professionals and trained volunteers lead age appropriate groups through clinical grief activities such as remembrance ceremonies, sharing circles, art therapy, music, creative writing, drama and other physical activities.

Campers will be grouped in cabins according to age/gender. Each cabin will be staffed with two trained Cabin Big Buddies for every 5 campers.

Campers dine with their cabin mates and Cabin Big Buddies. All meals and snacks will be provided by the camp.



Campgrounds have air conditioned cabins fully equipped kitchen, dining hall and bathroom/shower facilities.

At Camp Erin, grieving children learn that they are not alone, that their feelings are normal.
