Camp Erin–Twin Cities is a free, annual bereavement camp for children ages 6-17, who have experienced the death of a family member or friend.
Camp Erin is the country's largest network of bereavement camps and is made possible by a partnership between Fairview and Eluna.
At Camp Erin, the focus is on the kids! Professionals and highly trained volunteers of Fairview's Youth Grief Services work to combine all the fun and excitement of camp with time to connect with other kids who have experienced loss.
Along with our 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. See our 2019 Camp Erin Flyer for more details.

This year, Camp Erin-Twin Cities is scheduled for June 28-30 and Sept. 20-22, 2019. First-time campers will be given priority. All past Camp Erin-Twin Cities participants will be automatically placed on a waiting list.
