Camp Erin

Camp Erin is a weekend overnight camp for all kids who have experienced the death of a loved one. Staffed by Community Hospice bereavement counselors, nurses, and trained community volunteers, it combines traditional, fun, high energy camp activities with grief education and support. Campers have the opportunity to remember their loved ones, develop coping skills and enjoy a positive camp experience. Camp Erin is free to all campers ages 6 through 17 who have experienced a loss in their lifetime, regardless of whether or not their loved one was a Hospice patient.

Camp Erin was named after Erin Metcalf, a remarkable young woman who died of liver cancer at the age of 17, to acknowledge her love of children and desire to help others. Jamie and Karen Moyer of The Moyer Foundation started this grief camp for children as a tribute to Erin. There are now more than 35 Camp Erins throughout the United States.

The Community Hospice’s Camp Erin is held at the beautiful facilities of the Fowler Camp and Retreat Center on Sacandaga Lake in Speculator, New York, and is now in its fourth year. Camp takes place during a weekend in September each year, and 55 campers participate annually. Last year, the Community Hospice’s Camp Erin was recognized for its excellence by NBC’s top-rated morning program The Today Show, which selected our camp to feature in an in-depth segment.

Go to communityhospice.org for more information about these vital programs, or call Audrey Nadler-Kirchofer at (518) 694-4980.
