My son had never seen another bald child like himself until we took him to CAP's annual camp Alopeciapalooza. I know it made an impact on him as he now understands he's not alone. These camps offer age appropriate sessions with panels for both children and parents to learn and ask questions. The focus is primarily on self confidence and non medical coping strategies. It's a way for families across the country to connect both locally and nationally and the experience has been life changing. The founder, Jeff Woytovich, is amazing and has ensured that all children with alopecia attend camps for free. He is a blessing to all of our children and we will continue to support CAP in every way possible!
CAP has been amazing to not only my two boys who have alopecia, but to our whole family. The support has been life changing. Jeff travels around the US visiting schools to teach them about alopecia. They also have a camp called Alopeciapalooza, that is for children and adults with alopecia and their families.
My boys gained an increase in confidence and made so many friends while at Alopeciapalooza. It felt like being home. CAP does not charge any child with alopecia to attend. Our family went twice and we plan on going next year as well. Best experience ever. If you have never gone....you should.
Both of my twin boys have alopecia. They felt alone, different, and lost. Thanks to Children's Alopecia Project we were able to meet so many wonderful families. It has helped both of my boys be more confident and greatly helped their self esteem.
