Camp Erin Parent & Guardian Gathering

February 23, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

You’re invited to come together with other Camp Erin parents and guardians for an online discussion facilitated by Eluna’s national Camp Erin Director.
Over 30,000 youth have attended Camp Erin, and behind every camper there is an amazing network of adult caregivers. The past year has been hard, especially for grieving parents. We want to support your self-care and make space for you to connect with peers. We’ll spend time honoring the challenges this past year has presented, explore what it’s like to parent while grieving, and offer tips for staying connected as a family. We hope you will join us!
What to expect: To create a relaxed but interactive environment, we’ll use polls and chat to support each other and connect. We encourage you to have your camera on as comfortable to increase our sense of community.
Cost: Event is free to attend.
