Camp Erin is a weekend bereavement camp where kids who have lost a loved one can feel free to express their grief. Grief is a painful process and children respond to loss in different ways. The camp offers remembrance activities, sharing circles, and other activities where participants can tap into healthy ways of grieving their loved ones with the support of a group. Activities are led by grief professionals and trained volunteers who work to provide a safe, nurturing environment.
There are two camps available in 2015:
February 27 - March 1 in Homestead
May 15 - 17 in Fort Lauderdale

The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work
Based on the research of Dr. John Gottman and his team at The Gottman Institute, this workshop designed for couples helps them learn how to manage conflict better, communicate on a deeper level to heal emotional wounds, and grow intimacy to move past problem issues. Couples will receive a workbook with strategies to use at home when the "four horsemen" rear their ugly heads (criticism, contempt, defensiveness, and stonewalling).
