I was 11 years old when my 19 year old sister, Bobbie, was killed in an accident. Bobbie was young, and beautiful, and full of life. Her smile was infectious. She was mischievous, and funny, and a bit of trouble always brewed just under her surface. I miss her as much today as I did 34 years ago. And, unfortunately, the pain is almost as great. Writing this page has loomed over me for months, and it took a lot for me to work through the pain to sit down and write it. Why am I telling you this?
Because I know that if I, at age 11, had Camp Erin to go to, I would have been able to deal with my sister's death in a more healthy way. Camp Erin incoporates fun, traditional camp activities with grief processing, and allows children to share their experiences with others who can understand and relate. Camp Erin has become near and dear to my heart, knowing just how powerful what they do for these special children is.
