Camp Erin is a week long experience filled with traditional, fun, camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support - facilitated by grief professionals and trained volunteers. At Camp Erin, children are comforted knowing that there are other children who understand exactly what they are feeling and experiencing.

They are provied with tools and resources for use during and after camp, including memories and friendships that last long after camp is complete.
