If you think that your child’s condition will prevent him or her from participating in a summer camp, it’s time to think again. Many camps offer specialized medical care for specific disabilities or one-on-one buddies, while other camps provide tutoring for individuals with learning disabilities in addition to outdoor activities. Camps offer an opportunity to learn new skills, connect with other children, and experience new adventures.
Brain Camps Association (BCA) of Children’s National Medical Center is a consortium of residential camps, family camps, and programs for children with chronic health conditions. The primary goal of BCA camps and programs is to help youth with chronic health conditions live well and reach their full potential. With the support of our professional staff and cohesion of our camp community, children who attend Brainy Camps become more available to learn, test their limits, develop skills, and connect with peers. Rather than live in fear, they gain a sense of hope and begin to explore a future filled with possibilities.
