Providence Hospice Grief Support Services

Providence Hospice offers a full range of compassionate response to adults and children who are grieving the loss of a significant person. We realize the importance of acknowledging the unique grieving process of every individual. Included in this acknowledgement is the understanding that grief has no timeline.

We offer a variety of opportunities for ongoing support and education regarding grief, loss, and life adjustments following the death of a significant person. Our purpose is to help individuals, families and communities identify their needs and strengths and to provide them with a supportive presence for up to 15 months after the death.

We believe that people are resilient even when it comes to a significant loss. Sometimes additional support can help those who are grieving. Our services can provide specialized guidance and educational opportunities.

Camp Erin

SEATTLE Camp ErinA weekend camp for children and teens who've lost a loved one.

Camp Erin is a traditional, high-energy camp that emphasizes fun while also providing support and education to children who are grieving the loss of a loved one. In addition to typical camp activities (evening campfires, nature walks, arts and crafts, games and more), Camp Erin provides opportunities for healing and companionship not found in other settings. Campers engage in activities designed specifically for their age.

Camp Erin® is an overnight camp for children and teens between the ages of 6 to 17 who are grieving the death of a loved one. The camp is named after Erin Metcalf, a 17-year-old patient of Providence Hospice of Snohomish County who died in 2000 and was a close friend of Jamie Moyer (former All-Star pitcher for the Seattle Mariners) and the Moyer family. The Moyers founded Camp Erin in honor of Erin's memory.

Camp Erin is free for all participants, but space is limited and registration is required.
