Local Philanthropic Groups Support Camp Erin San Diego for Grieving Children and Teens

Annual camp is hosted by the Center for Compassionate Care of The Elizabeth Hospice


San Diego, CA USA – WEBWIRE – Monday, March 10, 2014

More than 100 children and teens will have the opportunity to attend Camp Erin San Diego, thanks to the generous donations from local philanthropic groups.

The Elizabeth Hospice is grateful to the following contributors for generously supporting these children through their sponsorship to Camp Erin San Diego 2014: Blanchard for Others $2,500; Escondido Rotary $2,500; New York Life, San Diego $1,520; and Rincon Band of Luiseno Mission Indians $2,500.

The Center for Compassionate Care of The Elizabeth Hospice hosts Camp Erin San Diego each year in partnership with The Moyer Foundation. This annual weekend summer camp is open to children and teens ages 6 to 17 who are grieving the death of someone close to them. This camp experience is free of charge and combines traditional, high-energy camp activities with grief support and education.

As one 10-year old camper said, “It helped me see the better things in life and helped me move on a lot so it is the best camp ever made in the universe.”
