Camp Erin® Denver - August 18-20, 2017Camp Erin® — an initiative created and supported by The Moyer Foundation — is a network of free overnight bereavement camps designed for children and teens ages 6-17 who have experienced the death of someone close to them.
Camp Erin Denver 2016 is set for Friday-Sunday, August 18 - 20 at Camp Granite Lake located in Coal Creek Canyon.
This weekend-long experience is filled with traditional, fun, high-energy camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support. Camp Erin offers a relaxed, safe and supportive environment, led by grief professionals and trained volunteers of Shimmering Wings.
Camp Erin Denver provides a unique opportunity for peer bonding between children and teens facing a similar life circumstance, including those from military families.
The mission of The Moyer Foundation is to provide comfort, hope and healing to children affected by loss and family addiction.
Founded in 2000 by World Series champion pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife Karen, The Foundation partners with healthcare and bereavement organizations in local communities to help fund, develop and grow Camp Erin nationwide.
