Camp Erin® Hawaii is a free, week­end bereave­ment camp for chil­dren and teens ages 6 – 17 who are griev­ing the death of some­one close to them. It is a fun, tra­di­tion­al camp com­bined with grief edu­ca­tion, peer bond­ing, and emo­tion­al sup­port led by grief sup­port pro­fes­sion­als and trained volunteers.

Camp Erin is an ini­tia­tive cre­at­ed and sup­port­ed by The Moy­er Foun­da­tion — the largest nation­al bereave­ment pro­gram for youth griev­ing the death of a sig­nif­i­cant per­son in their lives.

The next Camp Erin® Hawaii will take place in sum­mer 2019.

Camp Erin Hi

The Moy­er Foun­da­tion, a pub­lic, 501(c )(3) non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion, was found­ed in 2000 by World Series Cham­pi­on pitch­er, Jamie Moy­er, and child advo­cate Karen Phelps Moy­er. The mis­sion of The Moy­er Foun­da­tion is to pro­vide com­fort, hope and heal­ing to chil­dren and fam­i­lies affect­ed by grief and addiction.

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.

The Moy­er Foun­da­tion and Hos­pice of Kona are grate­ful to the many indi­vid­u­als, cor­po­ra­tions, foun­da­tions, com­mu­ni­ty part­ners and vol­un­teers for join­ing our team to help bring Camp Erin Hawaii to more chil­dren 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.
