Do you remember sitting around the campfire and signing camp songs, roasting marshmallows and giggling with your new friends? It’s your first day of summer camp and you are so excited to be there, to join in all the activities: archery, bowling, arts & crafts, horseback riding, etc.
Fast forward 25 years to being a mom and/or dad whose child who lives in chronic pain – there are no summer camps for your child because he/she is “too complex.”
But now there is a summer camp for children living in chronic pain: The Center for Courageous Kids in Scottsville, Kentucky.
RSDSA, together with the US Pain Foundation and The Coalition Against Pediatric Pain (TCAPP), is sponsoring a camp July 14-17, 2015 for children ages 7-17.
The goals of the summer camp are fun, fun, and (you guessed it) fun! It is the first time we have ever found a camp for children living in pain.
The camp is totally FREE for all participants and one parent who will stay at the camp with his/her child. Please go to tcapp.org and fill out an application today! Space is limited.
