About Camp Erin – Twin Cities

Camp Erin is a free, weekend bereavement camp for youth who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Children and teens ages 6 to 17 attend a weekend camp experience that combines grief education and emotional support with fun, traditional camp activities. Led by bereavement professionals and caring volunteers, campers are provided a safe environment to explore their grief, learn essential coping skills, and make friends with peers who are also grieving.

Making connections, lasting friendships

At Camp Erin, the focus is on the kids! Professionals and highly trained volunteers of Brighter Days Family Grief Center work to combine all the fun and excitement of camp with time to connect with other kids who have experienced loss.

Traditionally at Camp Erin, along with campfires, camp songs, cookouts, swimming, games and crafts, we incorporate education about grief and allow ample time for sharing with each other. During this special camp experience, campers develop genuine connections and lasting friendships. Watch our camp video from 2021 HERE!
