Camp Erin – MILWAUKEE
August 18 – 20, 2017
WHERE CHILDREN LEARN TO GRIEVE & HEAL
Created and supported by The Moyer Foundation, Camp 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. This weekend-long experience is 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.
The Moyer Foundation partners with healthcare and bereavement organizations in local communities to help fund, develop, and grow Camp Erin nationwide. Seasons Hospice Foundation has partnered with The Moyer Foundation to offer Camp Erin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Children ages 6-17 who have experienced the death of someone close to them. Since children experience grief in their own unique way, our campers may be at different stages of the bereavement process. Upon completion of the application form, one of our staff will contact you to complete an interview that will help our team to meet each individual camper’s needs and ensure appropriateness for this specialized camp prior to final registration.
