Auria spent this past weekend independently away from home for the first time EVER.
Camp Erin Philadelphia was a wonderful experience that allowed her to connect with other grieving children by opening up about the loss of her big brother to brain cancer. The Camp provides a safe, fun, and emotionally supportive environment for children to explore their grief and build healthy coping strategies. Staffed by licensed counselors and trained volunteers, Camp Erin combines traditional camp activities with bereavement education and support. Many thanks to the Moyer Foundation and Penn Medicine for putting together an extraordinary weekend of fun and friendship.

If you know a child who is grieving, this is the camp for them.
NO RAIN, NO RAINBOWS!!
