Camp

Where Children Learn to Grieve and Heal

August 25 – 27, 2023

Hosted at Camp Wayne for Girls

56 Nice People Place, Preston Park, PA 18455

 

 

COPE partners with Eluna to offer Camp Erin® NYC, a FREE, weekend long grief support camp designed to help children and teenagers ages 7 – 17, who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or someone close to them.

Children and teens ages 7 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. There is also a concurrent parent camp for caretakers of the children who attend Camp Erin NYC for a nominal fee.
