SAN DIEGO – Camp Erin® San Diego will be offered to San Diego County residents and surrounding communities with a recent grant from The Moyer Foundation to The Elizabeth Hospice. Camp Erin is a free overnight weekend camp experience addressing the needs of children and teens grieving the loss of someone close to them.

This annual weekend summer camp is open to children and teens ages 6 to 17 who are grieving from the death of someone close to them. This year’s camp will be held June 7 to 9 in Julian. This free camp experience combines traditional, high-energy camp activities with grief support and education.

Camp Erin San Diego is now accepting applications for campers and volunteers for the June 2013 camp. More information is available at elizabethhospice.org/camperin, camperin@ehospice.org or by calling (760) 737-2050.

"The Elizabeth Hospice is honored to be the San Diego host for this national program that both honors and supports grieving youth in our community," said Liz Sumner, Director of the Center for Compassionate Care of The Elizabeth Hospice. "Camp Erin San Diego attendees will discover the treasure of peer support and learn healthy outlets and strategies that they can take home."
