Grief Support Services

Short-term grief support is available for children and teens who have experienced the death of a loved one. To discuss the unique needs of your family and to learn more about the services available at Providence Hospice, please contact our office. Educational materials for family and schools are also available.

Standing Together

Standing Together typically brings grieving youth together in a safe, supportive, and fun environment. We are not currently able to gather in-person at this time due to the pandemic and social restrictions. We hope to resume groups in virtual or in-person format in 2022. If you would like more information on current grief support for children and teens, and to be notified of groups when they resume, please call 425-261-4807.

Camp Erin

Camp Erin provides a caring environment, filled with activities to assist children and teens coping with loss. It is a free weekend camp for youth grades K-12 who have experienced a loss. Camp Erin offers a special combination of fun recreational activities and supportive discussions to help campers build their trust, self-esteem and coping skills. Age-appropriate groups of children and teens provide an opportunity to meet with peers who have had similar feelings and experiences. Planned activities allow for sharing of feelings and concerns, friendship building, and fun.

All of the following activities are led and sponsored by pediatric specialists and trained volunteers: Art therapy, storytelling, recreational activities, swimming, music, healing rituals, nature walks, grief workshops

Charitable support makes it possible

With the support of an endowment, donations from our community, employees, grants and individual donors, Camp Erin-Snohomish County can be offered at no cost to grieving children and their families. We accept both individual donations and grants in support of Camp Erin.

Grief Support Services provides workshops and presentations throughout the year. Organizations, schools or businesses may also call the Grief Support Services Program to arrange for a situational specific event. Please call 425-261-4807 for more information.
