Camp Erin® – Twin Cities
Join Us Sept. 25, 2021
The health and safety of our campers is our top priority. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, modifications to the camp weekend have been made in an effort to support campers and their families. Although we are not able to offer a traditional camp experience, we are grateful to be able to offer a unique camp-like opportunity for one full day. Registration will open soon; for more information please email Jenny.
About Camp Erin – Twin Cities
Camp Erin is a free, weekend bereavement camp for youth who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Children and teens ages 6 to 17 attend a weekend camp experience that combines grief education and emotional support with fun, traditional camp activities. Led by bereavement professionals and caring volunteers, campers are provided a safe environment to explore their grief, learn essential coping skills, and make friends with peers who are also grieving.
Making connections, lasting friendships
At Camp Erin, the focus is on the kids! Professionals and highly trained volunteers of Fairview’s Youth Grief Services work to combine all the fun and excitement of camp with time to connect with other kids who have experienced loss.
Traditionally at Camp Erin, along with campfires, camp songs, cookouts, swimming, games and crafts, we incorporate education about grief and allow ample time for sharing with each other. During this special camp experience, campers develop genuine connections and lasting friendships.
