Camp Forget Me Not - Camp Erin

Camper and Volunteer applications for Camp Forget-Me-Not/Camp Erin DC 2022 will be available March 14, 2022.  Click here for details. Download our 2022 flyer!

Camp Forget-Me-Not/Camp Erin DC is a free bereavement camp for youth who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. As the nation continues to navigate the impact of a pandemic, the Wendt Center will offer children and teens ages 6 to 17 the opportunity to attend a one-day, outdoor, 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. The camp is not designed as a replacement for therapy but as an enjoyable opportunity to explore grief where a child’s self-expression is heard, valued and honored.
