Camp Erin of the Central Valley is a fun-filled three day camp for children and teens ages 6 to 17 who have experienced the death of someone close to them. It is a fun, traditional camp combined with grief education, peer bonding, and emotional support led by grief support professionals and trained volunteers.
Camp Erin of the Central Valley provides a unique opportunity for grieving children to increase hope and enhance self-esteem. Campers benefit by learning that they are not alone and that there are others who share similar feelings; that their feelings are perfectly normal; healthy ways to express their feelings; and to honor/remember the person who died.
Foothill Horizons, located in Sonora, California, serves as our camp location. Camp Erin of the Central Valley is offered free of charge to all campers.
Camp Erin of the Central Valley is part of The Moyer Foundation’s national Camp Erin program.
