Each child experiences the traditional sleep-away camp experience, while gaining confidence and independence. For some, it may be their very first time away from home. Campers meet other children with medical problems similar to their own, and “teach” to their counselors and cabin-mates. They learn new skills and improve techniques for managing and coping with their medical condition. Most importantly, the children participate as fully as possible in all camping activities, and meet a diverse group of campers and camp staff, from around the world.
