"I love Camp Erin because it helped remind me who I am and how brave and strong I am."

Camper, Age 10

what we do

Camp Erin® Boston is a FREE bereavement camp for youth who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Traditionally a weekend long program, we are currently offering a family camp program for children and teens and their families 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.
