The Camp Mariposa® SW Washington Teen Program is a free program for youth ages 13-17 who have been affected by the substance use disorder of a family member.
Teens attend camp throughout the year to participate in fund traditional camp activities and education sessions to learn how to break the cycle of addiction.
Eluna partners with youth-focused and mental health organizations in local communities to help fund, develop and grow Camp Mariposa® nationwide. Eluna is a public, 501(c)(3) non-profit with a mission to support children and families impacted by grief or addiction. Founded in 2000 in Seattle by former MLB pitcher Jamie Moyer and child advocate Karen Phelps Moyer, Eluna was originally called The Moyer Foundation and launched a series of programs supporting thousands of children and families annually at no cost to them. Camp Erin® is the largest national network of grief programs for bereaved children and teens, Camp Mariposa® is a national addiction prevention and mentoring program for youth impacted by a family member’s substance use disorder, and the Eluna Resource Center offers online tools, local referrals and personalized phone and email support for families experiencing grief, addiction and other related issues.
