Camp Erin

Camp Erin Tucson/Phoenix is October 23rd to 25th, 2015

Thanks to the partnership with The Moyer Foundation, Tu Nidito is able to offer a free, weekend bereavement camp for children and teens ages 6 through 17 who are grieving the death of someone close to them. Campers participate in fun, traditional camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support led by Tu Nidito professionals and specially trained volunteers.

Camp Erin has over 40 locations nationwide and is the largest network of bereavement camps in the country. The camp was founded in 2000 by Major League pitcher, Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen. The foundation’s mission is to help children and teens in distress. With the community’s support, the foundation creates and funds programs to give children the tools, skills and support to overcome life’s greatest challenges. Tu Nidito was granted the Camp Erin partnership in 2013.
