Camp Candlelight

April 24, 2014 | By |

 

**ANNOUNCING 2017 DATES: Sunday June 4 – Saturday June 10!** 

CHECK BACK FOR APPLICATIONS IN JANUARY 2017.

For an entire week, children with epilepsy (ages 8-17), enjoy all the fun activities and friendships that come with a classic trip to summer camp. While partaking in camp adventures and entertainment, the children are able to leave behind various challenges epilepsy can bring to their daily lives. At Camp Candlelight, campers are surrounded by dozens of other campers who have epilepsy and share in many of the same experiences stemming from the seizure disorder. Camp is often the first time many children meet others their age with epilepsy. Imagine the unique opportunity children have by not worrying about what people think if they have a seizure or if they will be excluded from activities just because they are different. At Camp Candlelight, epilepsy is the norm.

Camp Candlelight features activities such as: rock climbing, high ropes course, s’mores around the campfire, paintball, swimming, Studio E, epilepsy informational sessions and nature hikes.  More important than the activities, Camp Candlelight is an opportunity to bond with other children who experience a seizure disorder.

 Applications available beginning January 2017.

Fees: $500/camper

NOTE: Financial assistance is available for campers who qualify, following submission/review of required financial documentation.

Eligibility for Camp Candlelight, a child must:

  • Have a diagnosis of epilepsy or seizure disorders
  • Be ages 8 through 17
  • Be able to feed, bathe, dress and toilet with minimal assistance
  • Work well in small groups

Counselors must be 18 years of age and older.  A limited number of Counselor-in-Training positions exist for those aged 17 or older who have shown leadership ability in their community or as a previous camper.

We’d like to thank and recognize our 2016 Camp Candlelight Sponsors for their generous support!
