Camp Erin Denver is a free overnight peer support camp for grieving youth ages 6 - 17. It combines grief education and support activities with fun, traditional camp activities. In this safe environment, campers are able to explore their grief, learn essential coping skills and make friends with peers who are also grieving.

Cabin Buddies are assigned to a specific cabin group with whom they stay providing practical and emotional support to the campers throughout the weekend. Camp activities include such activities as a grief hike, climbing wall, camper olympics, and our ever popular tile smash among others.

Camp is an incredibly humbling and rewarding experience!!
