Camp Discovery “Epilepsy Camp”– July 20 – 24, 2019
Offered to campers age 7-15, this is a unique camping experience developed especially for young people with epilepsy.

Applications along with required authorizations submitted after April 15th, may be placed on a waiting list or encounter a delay in acceptance to camp.

Teen Camp “Solstice Camp” – June 27 – June 30, 2019 
Offered to campers age 16-17, we will be hosting a teen camping experience that focuses on self-esteem building, empowerment, and transition to adulthood – in addition to the traditional fun camp activities. This camp is open to teens who have a variety of medical needs, including teens with epilepsy.  *Applications are available  HERE.
