Good Samaritan Hospice, with The Moyer Foundation and Concordia, hosts this overnight camp for children and adolescents who have lost someone close to them. This year’s camp will be held June 9-11 and will once again take place at YMCA Camp Kon-O-Kwee Spencer, about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh.
Camp Erin® Pittsburgh, which is for children and teens ages 6-17, offers a safe place where young people can create friendships with others who have been through a similar loss. The free camp combines traditional, fun-filled recreational activities with grief education, peer bonding and emotional support. Camp is staffed by professional counselors and campers are paired with trained volunteers. A memorial service is held at the end of the weekend for campers and their families.
