Camp Discovery
 
 
 

Greetings Past and Future Camper Families & Volunteers! We are happy to continue our partnership with North Star Reach for Camp Discovery and so much more! North Star Reach is a member of SeriousFun Children’s Network, founded by Paul Newman, that partners with organizations, such as ours, to serve children with chronic and life-threatening health challenges across the Great Lakes Region, free of charge.

 

Camp Dates & Descriptions:

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. Camp will include many of the experiences you have come to expect like swimming, boating, fishing, arts & crafts, and “Ask the Neurologist,” but with the addition of a few more like pontoon boat rides, adventure activities, cooking classes, and more! *Applications are available  HERE.  
*Registration is ongoing and is done on a rolling basis. Completion of application and submission of required authorizations is preferred by April 15th. 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 
For many years now, we have received feedback that we needed to enhance the camping experience for older teens. Offered to campers age 16-17, together with North Star Reach, we will be hosting a Teen Week 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.
*Registration is ongoing and is done on a rolling basis. Completion of application and submission of required authorizations is preferred by April 15th. Applications along with required authorizations submitted after April 15th, may be placed on a waiting list or encounter a delay in acceptance to camp.

Epilepsy Family Camp - October 25 - October 27, 2019
Epilepsy Family Camp is designed to build relationships with and receive support from other families who understand what it means to raise children with serious health challenges. Many activities are offered such as boating, arts and crafts, archery, evening campfires, morning hikes, and more. Activities are planned so that families can spend time together. This camp is also open to families that have a child with other health challenges.  Applications are available  HERE.
