The Willow Center for Grieving Children is holding Camp Erin© in our region July 17th – 19th, 2015, at Camp Wooten State Park near Pomeroy, WA. This camp is FREE to all the campers! Camp Erin is a bereavement camp for children ages 6-17, grieving the death of someone close, whether the death occurred recently or some time ago. This overnight traditional, fun, high-energy camp is combined with grief education and emotional support. The camp is staffed by professional bereavement counselors from the Willow Center and community volunteers trained by child bereavement experts who’ve been working with children at the Willow Center.
Camp Erin, was established by The Moyer Foundation in 2002 and has grown into the largest network of bereavement camps in the country. The Willow Center is happy to partner with The Moyer Foundation to provide this unique opportunity for peer bonding between children and teens facing a similar life circumstance.
