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.

Vol­un­teers Wanted

Camp Erin Hawaii is led by grief pro­fes­sion­als and trained vol­un­teers who help pro­vide a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty for youth to increase lev­els of hope, enhance self-esteem, and espe­cial­ly to learn that they are not alone.

Pre­vi­ous camp­ing expe­ri­ence is help­ful but not required because Hos­pice of Kona will train the vol­un­teer in their spe­cif­ic posi­tion, which include:

  • Cab­in Big Buddies
  • Clin­i­cal Support
  • Free Time Activities
  • Gen­er­al Sup­port Team
  • Grief Work­shops
  • Set-up and Take down
