About Camp Erin

At Camp Erin, children are comforted knowing that there are other children who have experienced similar situations and understand how they are feeling. Children have an opportunity to address their feelings and memorialize their loved ones. They are provided with the tools and resources needed during and after camp, including memories and friendships that last long after camp is complete.
