Join Kids Crew!

April 1, 2020 | By |

Epilepsy Foundation Kids Crew

The Epilepsy Foundation thinks that kids have big hearts and are able to do amazing things. We created the Kids Crew with three areas in mind where we believe you can excel in your journey with epilepsy.

  1. Creating epilepsy awareness to help educate family, friends, and your community.
  2. Sharing your stories so that others can learn from your experiences.
  3. Participating in Lemonade for Livy, the Purple Pumpkin Project, and local walks.

At the Kids Crew, we want you to use your imagination and think creatively. We know kids have unique gifts that can be used to give back to others under the three areas on which we focus. We want you to take it upon yourself to come up with ideas that can impact your community based on what you have experienced. Doing so allows for teamwork, helps you learn more about epilepsy, and gives you confidence. Our belief is that you can use your talents to give back to others and to make a real difference.

We think you are capable of tremendous kind and generous acts! We know you have the ability to change lives and look forward to telling you about some of the amazing kids who are doing great things in their communities. At the Kids Crew, we respect others, never judge one another, and believe every kid is important. What you learn at the Kids Crew will help you in many areas of your life.

The program is free to join and is for kids ages 14 and under of all abilities. If you don’t have epilepsy, we still want you to join. Often, siblings, friends, and relatives of those with epilepsy are the best advocates. We are looking for those who want to learn, spread awareness, and make a difference. And have fun, too!!

Kids Crew Membership Kit

Kids Crew members will receive:

  • A certificate
  • Kids Crew pin
  • Lanyard and membership card

***PLEASE READ: DUE TO HEALTH RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH COVID-19 CAMP CANDLELIGHT 2020 IS OFFICIALLY CANCELLED THIS SUMMER. THIS DECISION WAS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT FOR US TO MAKE BUT THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF ALL MUST COME FIRST. WE ARE VERY SORRY AND LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING EVERYONE NEXT SUMMER!***

NOTE: ALL SCHOLARSHIP AND CAMP APPLICATION FEES WILL BE REFUNDED IN FULL BUT MAY TAKE A BIT OF TIME. WE TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING.

About Camp Candlelight

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.

Camper Eligibility Requirements:

  • Have a diagnosis of epilepsy or seizure disorders
  • Be ages 8 through 17 (exceptions on case by case basis depending upon doctor’s note regarding child’s cognitive level)
  • Be able to feed, bathe, dress and toilet with minimal assistance
