Camp Erin: Providing hope and healing
This year’s Fairview Camp Erin-Twin Cities was bigger than ever before—thanks to the generosity of kind men and women like you. Thank you!
Serving more than 70 children, the weekend retreat provided a mix of classic camp fun and healing activities led by Fairview’s Youth Grief Services staff and volunteers. However, on the first day of camp a sad truth remained—we had reached our capacity, meaning another 40 kids who were struggling to cope with a profound loss weren’t able to join us at camp this year. We'd never had a wait list like this before.
Fortunately, we put out the call for help, and you answered. In just one week, our generous community of donors raised enough funds to create a special retreat to serve the families of the 40 children who were waitlisted for this year's Camp Erin-Twin Cities.
Thanks to you, 40 more children and their families know they aren't alone in their grief.
