2017 Juvenile Arthritis Camp Programs
The Arthritis Foundation’s JA camp programs give kids with arthritis, Ehlers-Danlos and related childhood rheumatic diseases the chance to make lasting memories. Our programs provide a safe and secure camping experience for children and teens. Campers gain a greater understanding of their own diagnosis and treatment, develop peer-to-peer support, increase independence and self-confidence, discover new skills and interests, and develop the skills they need to be leaders, advocates and champions in their everyday lives. For many young people, a week at camp with other kids who have JA can change their lives.
