This past weekend, grieving kids from central and eastern Washington met at Tall Timber Ranch in Leavenworth for Camp Erin — Wenatchee. The camp served as a bereavement camp for children and teens ages 6 through 17 who are grieving the death of someone close to them. It was funded by The Moyer Foundation.

Campers participated in fun, traditional camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support, led by Grief Place — NCW Loss Support staff, like Karen Sheppard, director of Grief Place, and trained volunteers.
