Camp Erin Hawaii
Camp Erin is an initiative created and founded by The Moyer Foundation in Seattle, Washington―a non-profit organization established by Major League All-Star pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen. Camp Erin is a bereavement camp designed for children ages 6-17 who have experienced the loss of a family member or friend.
Camp Erin 2013
It is a traditional, fun, high-energy camp combined with grief education and emotional support. Camp Erin is named in memory of Erin Metcalf, a friend of the Moyer's who lost her battle to cancer at age 17. Erin's wish was to help other children. Through The Moyer Foundation, Camp Erin has been established across the country, making it the largest network of bereavement camps in the country. Each Camp Erin is facilitated through a partnership with a local hospice or grief support agency. Together, these organizations and The Moyer Foundation raise funds to help establish new camps, bringing the healing experience of Camp Erin to children in more communities each year.

With your help, this unique weekend-long camp brings critical life coping skills, hope and healing to thousands of grieving children and teens.
