CAMP ERIN(r) King County

Where Children Learn to Grieve and Heal

If you are interested in volunteering with Camp Erin King County for Summer 2023, please complete our online application:


Camp Erin(r) King County is a free, weekend bereavement camp for youth who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Children and teens ages 6 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. Created and supported by Eluna, Camp Erin(r) is the largest national bereavement program for youth grieving the death of a significant person in their lives.


In 2002, the first Camp Erin(r) location was established in Everett, WA, in honor of Erin Metcalf, a family friend of Karen Phelps Moyer and Jamie Moyer who lost her battle with cancer at age 17. Erin’s wish was to help other children coping a loss.

Mission Statement

As expressions of God’s healing love, witnessed through the ministry of Jesus, we are steadfast in serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.


Providence Hospice of Seattle volunteers serve patients and families throughout King and Pierce Counties, wherever they may call home (private residence, nursing facility, adult family home, etc.). Volunteers play a key role in their own communities providing support and comfort to those who are facing terminal illness.

Hospice volunteers provide non-clinical patient care and family support, assist with grief support services, and contribute administrative and operational support.

We offer opportunities to gain new skills, uphold client agency and autonomy in pursuit of their goals, and empower you to be an informed advocate. All roles support our core values of compassion, justice, dignity, integrity, and excellence . Our team will help you discover your strengths and guide you toward your best role. Comprehensive training is tailored to each position to ensure you are confident and comfortable in your responsibilities. Volunteers are required to be up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations.
