Students and families are reminded that Mourning Hope Grief Center is partnering with The Moyer Foundation for a fourth year to host Camp Erin® Lincoln. Registration is now open for the Lincoln camp scheduled for September 22-24, 2017, at Carol Joy Holling Camp in Ashland, NE.
Camp Erin is a weekend-long, overnight bereavement camp designed for children between the ages of 6-17 who have experienced the death of someone close to them. It is a traditional, high-energy, fun camp experience combined with grief education. This special camp is offered free of charge to all families in Nebraska.
Camp Erin is an initiative created and funded-in-part by The Moyer Foundation, a non-profit organization established by Major League All-Star pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen.
“As a society, we tend to overlook how children are affected by grief,” said Carly Runestad, executive director of the Mourning Hope Grief Center. “There’s tremendous need for the kind of support Camp Erin provides, and we’re very glad to share this program with the entire Nebraska community.”
At Camp Erin, children learn that they are not alone in their grief. The fun, familiar environment of camp is combined with planned activities that give children a chance to honor their loved ones, express their feelings and make lasting friendships with peers who are facing similar experiences. Led by grief professionals and trained volunteers, Camp Erin helps children learn to cope and to heal.
“A child should never have to grieve alone,” said Karen Moyer, co-founder and vice president of The Moyer Foundation. “Together, with the team at the Mourning Hope Grief Center, we’re thrilled to make Camp Erin Lincoln available to all children and their families.”
