Camp Discovery


What is Camp Discovery?

Camp Discovery is Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan's overnight summer camp experience for children with epilepsy.

Some of the summer Camp activities include: 
  • swimming
  • boating
  • archery
  • arts & crafts
  • sports
  • "Ask the Neurologist" session
  • and so much more!
What makes Camp Discovery unique?
Camp Discovery offers 24-hour medical staffing, including two pediatric neurologists, as well as the opportunity to learn and share with peers and counselors who also have epilepsy. Camp Discovery is fully equipped to manage frequent seizures, medication administration and monitoring, and disabilities often associated with epilepsy, such as cerebral palsy, autism, and intellectual disability. Because of this uniquely safe and supportive environment, campers are free to discover their own abilities.  

How does Camp Discovery benefit campers and their families?
Camp Discovery is where kids with epilepsy discover their own abilities. The chance to try new things and the interaction with others who live with epilepsy contribute to a truly life-changing experience. Campers come away with newfound confidence, independence, social skills, knowledge of epilepsy, and friendships. Parents benefit from the respite provided by camp and by learning just how much their children can accomplish if given the opportunity.
