Camp Erin is a bereavement camp for youth who have experienced loss. I had the opportunity to volunteer as a cabin Big Buddy the summer of 2014 for seven 7 year old boys. Camp Erin is sponsored by Fairview Youth Grief Services and the Moyer Foundation. Camp is held each July at Camp Heartland in Hinckley, MN.
Becker High School Sculpture Garden
I had the opportunity to design and build a sculpture garden at Becker High school over the summer of 2014 with high school youth at risk of not graduating. While these youth are often labeled with disabilities and behavior issues in the traditional classroom setting, taking them outside to get their hands dirty provided a great learning environment to teach occupational and technical skills, conflict management, life skills and work ethic.
