Programs: Week-long residential camps for children diagnosed with epilepsy, asthma, or obesity ages 9 through 17. Campers participate in traditional camp activities such as archery, high ropes, rock wall, arts & crafts and more. Campers also learn more about disease management in order to improve quality of life. All camps are staffed with volunteer medical personnel. Campers get to meet other kids that are just like them and have the opportunity to feel 'normal'.
