Camp Erin CT

CAMP ERIN CONNECTICUT is in its 8th year of service and will serve 80 campers ages 6-17 in May 2020. Originally named CAMP ERIN NEWTOWN, the Camp name was changed in year 2 to Camp Erin CT to serve the tri-state area. It is part of a network of 48 bereavement camps overseen by Eluna and local bereavement agencies. Campers participate in a 3-day overnight camping experience designed to help them to process their grief amongst their peers. They participate by sharing their stories and memories of their loved ones and have a public forum in which to memorialize and discuss their feelings about the death. Camp provides a safe and healing environment that is a combination of fun, traditional camp activities combined with grief processing, education and emotional support led by expert bereavement professionals and trained volunteers. Activities include grief processing and healing activities including a memory board, sharing, journaling, artwork, music and art therapy, pet therapy, martial arts and yoga, and a luminary ceremony.
