MedCamps of Louisiana holds a series of one-week, fun-filled camps each summer free of charge for children in Louisiana facing the challenges of a variety of physical and mental disabilities. These include spina bifida and orthopedic conditions, cerebral palsy, asthma, sickle cell anemia, autism, epilepsy, visual impairment, hearing impairment, speech impairment and those developmentally disabled.
Children battling these disorders are often unable to participate in normal childhood activities. Consequently, they are often “left out” because they have special needs. With MedCamps that is no longer the case.
A different camp each week
Every week during the summer a different camp is held. Each camp is designed specifically for a particular type of disability – and that includes appropriate health professionals, specially trained staff and tailored activities. (Prior to camp, each parent or guardian is responsible for providing the camp office with the details of the camper’s medical management program as prescribed by the camper’s physician.)
The focus is on what campers can do, and all campers are encouraged to reach their full potential. In the safe environment of MedCamps, surrounded by other children with similar challenges, these special campers discover they are not alone and gain a genuine sense of belonging, accomplishment and self-worth.
