A handmade quilt lovingly crafted and sewn by 10 Elsmere students has made its way to a camp for children grieving the loss of a loved one. Camp Erin, located in the Adirondacks, will host 60 campers ages six to 17 this weekend. When they arrive, each camper will choose a quilt that they can use while at the camp and will take it home with them. The Elsmere quilt will be among those available campers.

The students who helped make the Elsmere quilt for Camp Erin are: Daniella Gaetano, Daniel McNabb, Miranda Cronlund, Jordan Collins, Isabella DiMura, Alex Roe, Katie Brown, Maura Corbitt, Sierra Doherty and Emily Snyder. The students were all members of the afterschool Sewing Club last spring.

Camp Erin is sponsored by The Moyer Foundation and The Community Hospice. The camp combines traditional, fun, high energy camp activities with grief education and support. Campers have the opportunity to remember their loved ones, develop coping skills and enjoy a positive camp experience.
