Camp Erin® Kansas City and Camp Carousel are bereavement camps for those who are grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Families with children and teens attend a day or 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 connect with peers who are also grieving. Camp Erin is for families who are several months past their loss at the time of camp.

Camp Erin® Kansas City & Camp Carousel provides a safe place for participants to:

  • Tell their story in a safe environment
  • Learn they are not alone
  • Process grief in healthy ways
  • Honor and memorialize loved ones
  • Build a toolbox of coping skills
  • Have fun!

Your donation will help ensure Camp Erin® Kansas City & Camp Carousel are available at no cost to participants. Camps are provided for families with children and teens ages 5 to 17 with traditional camp activities such as music, art projects, games, campfires, pet therapy, hikes and more.





“As we expected camp has been WONDERFUL. The genuine smile on (my daughter’s) face in the pictures I took at drop off and the ones the counselors are sending me are testament to what an amazing thing you are doing. Thank you so very, very much! ”


“I can see what other kids have gone through and how they survived. It helps me get through & conquer. We are all survivors. That’s a gift.”


“When I'm at camp, I feel like a normal kid. Some kids don't get to go outside because our parents are just working too much and too hard. At home, I'm just watching movies all day. I don't want to get too old to come to Wildwood.”


“Without the support of Camps for Kids and the matching fund, CHD Families would be unable to provide a free medically supervised summer camp for kids with Congenital Heart Defects.”


“I look back on the struggle of my childhood and one of the most important and best childhood memories I have include the time spent at camp with the amazing men and women who treated me like I was normal despite my struggle”
