Where Youth Learn to Grieve and Heal

Camp Erin® Hawaii is a free, weekend bereavement camp for youth who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Children and teens ages 6–17 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.

Camp Erin® Hawaii was created and is supported in part by Eluna. The mission of Eluna is to support children and families impacted by grief or addiction.

Camp Erin is the largest national bereavement program for youth grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. As of December 2017, Eluna’s three national programs have served more than 64,000 children, teens and families since 2002.

The dates for the next Camp Erin® Hawaii have not yet been determined.

Let us know if you have any questions.
