It's time to announce the Beneficiary of the 6th annual 12th Knight Auction this year!
This Year we will be helping out a movement called 'Camp Erin'. (http://www.moyerfoundation.org/events/erin.aspx)
Camp Erin is a bereavement camp designed for children ages 6-17 who have experienced the death of a parent, friend or loved one. It is a weekend-long experience filled with traditional, fun, camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support -- facilitated by grief professionals and trained volunteers. The Moyer Foundation partners with local hospice and grief counseling organizations in the communities where the camps exist. Because these organizations are seeing and treating grieving children everyday, they act as the natural camp hosts and registration points for children and Camp Erin bereavement camps.
It started in Snohomish County and is expanding nationwide starting next year.
Two videos (one short, the other longer) that will help explain what Camp Erin does are at:
