Camp Erin for Kids, San Diego Hospice

Camp Erin San Diego is an annual weekend summer camp open to children ages 6 to 17 who have been impacted by a death. This free camp combines a traditional, high-energy, fun camp experience with grief support and education. Camp Erin San Diego will be held June 8-10, 2012 in Julian, California. The Camper Application is now posted! Please click on the "Camper Application" link on the right sidebar. “Sometimes it’s hard for kids to communicate with loved ones and family about their loss,” says Jacqui Small, a Camp Erin San Diego volunteer for the past two years, “The opportunity for campers at Camp Erin San Diego to interact with other kids who are experiencing similar types of loss and grief is priceless.” Information on additional services from The Center for Grief Care and Education available at: 619-278-6480 / griefinfo@sdhospice.org. Camp Erin San Diego is part of a national network of bereavement camps founded by The Moyer Foundation, a non-profit organization established by World Series champion and MLB All-Star Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen with a mission to help children in distress.
