Bryan Health College: Health Career Camp

What do you want to be?
Does this question ever enter your conversations?! It seems the minute you hit high school everyone is looking toward your future. Though, it’s true you need to start preparing for college, it’s hard to know what steps to take to get there. And, you don’t always have enough time or options available to explore different careers.
As you start exploring options, there are always more questions to consider:
 Do I want to work with people?
Do I like fast paced environments?
Do I like science?
How long will it take me to get through college?
What if we told you we could help you answer those questions and let you experience some really cool things hands-on? Curious?
If you answered yes to any of the questions, then a career option for you to consider
might be the health care field.
Camp experience
What is the health care field? Some think the health care field is made up of only doctors and nurses…But did you know that there are more than just those professionals that keep a hospital running?

Camp Erin

For a third year Mourning Hope Grief Center is partnering with The Moyer Foundation to host Camp Erin Lincoln. Registration is now open for the Lincoln camp scheduled for September 23-25, 2016, at Carol Joy Holling Camp. Please click here to access brochure.

Camp Erin is a weekend-long, overnight bereavement camp designed for children between the ages of 6-17 who have experienced the death of someone close to them. It is a traditional, fun, high-energy camp experience combined with grief education. This special camp is offered free of charge to all families.

Camp Erin is an initiative created and funded-in-part by The Moyer Foundation, a non-profit organization established by Major League All-Star pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen.

“As a society, we tend to overlook how children are affected by grief,” said Carly Runestad, executive director of the Mourning Hope Grief Center. “There’s tremendous need for the kind of support Camp Erin provides, and we’re very glad to share this program with the entire Nebraska community.”

At Camp Erin, children learn that they are not alone in their grief. The fun, familiar environment of camp is combined with planned activities that give children a chance to honor their loved ones, express their feelings and make lasting friendships with peers who are facing similar experiences. Led by grief professionals and trained volunteers, Camp Erin helps children learn to cope and to heal.

“A child should never have to grieve alone,” said Karen Moyer, co-founder and vice president of The Moyer Foundation. “Together, with the team at the Mourning Hope Grief Center, we’re thrilled to make Camp Erin Lincoln available to all children and their families.”
