Summer camp can be a formative experience for any child. Unfortunately for kids with medical conditions and their families, camp may seem too daunting.
However, there is no reason for children with special needs to be isolated from camp adventures. MedCamps of Arkansas provides safe, medically appropriate camps for atypical children.
We know that camp can be particularly impactful for kids who often struggle with not feeling “normal.” According to the Journal of Pediatric Psychology, attending a disease-specific summer camp can provide many benefits for campers:
- Improved attitudes toward their illnesses
- Became more self-sufficient
- More knowledgeable about their condition
