Camp Erin Serves About 40 Pittsburgh Area Teens

June 21, 2011

Happy first day of summer! For many of us, this time of year goes hand in hand with summer camps - the great outdoors, bonfires, new friends... great memories.

As some of you might know, one of our bereavement camps was held this past weekend. Camp Erin, which is a collaboration between The Moyer Foundation and Good Samaritan Hospice, a mission of Concordia, served about 40 teenagers who have lost a loved one.

The camp coupled fun, recreational activities and crafts with grief education and emotional support. Below are a few pictures from the weekend and here are links to a very cool video and news article done by the Beaver County Times (who were wonderful for coming out!).

Don't forget, Camp Good SAM for kids ages 6 - 12 will be held Aug. 18-20. For more information, camp applications, sponsorship or volunteer opportunities, call Good Samaritan Hospice Volunteer Coordinator Anna Olszewski at 1.800.720.2557, e-mail here or visit Good Samaritan Hospice online.
