Camp Erin® is a weekend bereavement camp for children ages 8–17, created by and funded in part by Eluna Network and a program of Cornerstone of Hope.

Camp Erin® is the largest national bereavement program for youth who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Children and teens ages 8 to 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. Additional services are offered to support the whole family outside of the camp weekend. Through a network of partnerships with bereavement programs in local communities across the US and Canada, Camp Erin brings hope and healing to thousands of children and families annually and is offered at no cost to families. For more information, please visit

All new campers must attend an intake session. No cost to attend.

Please note that attendance at the Save Your Spot Pizza Party is mandatory in order to secure your spot at Camp Erin®.  The Save Your Spot Pizza Parties will be held on Thursday, July 28th from 6:00pm-7:30pm at our Columbus office or Friday, July 29th, 2022 from 6:00pm-7:30pm at our Cleveland office,. At this meeting we will be going over important release forms, medical information, and what you can expect from the camp weekend. Additionally, campers will have the opportunity to meet others who will be at camp, providing them with a familiar face when they attend camp. Please be sure to check your email for additional information.
