Camp Erin 2020: Cancelled
Hello Camp Erin Families,
It is with a heavy heart we must let you know we have made the decision to cancel the camp dates for this June due to COVID-19. We were ultimately attempting to wait as long as possible to assess the conditions of our communities and there are still so many uncertainties as to what this summer holds for our community and beyond. Above all else we value the physical and emotional safety of the children and families we serve, our volunteers, and staff and therefore we have chosen to cancel at this time.
We will continue to look at other camp options for possibly later in the year and will post updates here as we have information available.
The Grief Center is additionally exploring other ways to serve grieving children and teens through other programming. As these opportunities become available, we will announce them to our community.
Please reach out to our Camp Director at 918-587-1200 ext. 102 or at Lucretia@thegriefcenter.org if you have any further questions or concerns.

One in seven children will lose a parent or sibling before they are 20.
Research links untreated grief with depression, struggles in school, drug and alcohol abuse, and death by suicide.
Kids that have experienced a loss can feel isolated, different. They may feel like no one understands what they are feeling.
This feeling, combined with the pressure to be strong or to “get over it” can crush little hearts. Children are resilient, but they need help coping with their loss. They need a safe place to tell their story and heal. Camp Erin Tulsa gives them that place.
Camp Erin Tulsa is a free, weekend bereavement camp for youth who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Children and teens ages 6 to 17 attend a weekend camp experience that combines grief education and emotional support with fun, traditional camp activities. Led by bereavement professionals and caring volunteers, campers are provided a safe environment to explore their grief, learn essential coping skills, and make friends with peers who are also grieving.
”It was amazing to realize that I’m not the only person who has ever been through something like this. We all have a different story, but we all share one of the most important parts. I LOVED camp.”
