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.”
