The Amputee Coalition’s Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp is a 5-day traditional summer camp experience for children ages 10-17 who have lost arms and/or legs or who were born with limb differences. The camp offers challenging activities that build campers’ confidence regardless of skill level and takes place at Camp JOY in Clarksville, OH.

A unique aspect of our program is that campers are not accompanied by their parents, which inspires campers to take on new challenges, be independent, test themselves and build new friendships in a supportive, caring environment.

The Coalition covers all expenses, including travel, for the campers. The average cost to send a child to camp is $1,800. Since its beginning in 2000, the camp has hosted more than 790 campers with limb loss or limb difference.

2015 Boys vs. Girls Camp Fundraising Challenge

Help our youth campers and counselors! The Amputee Coalition is excited to kick off its second annual Boys vs. Girls Camp Fundraising Challenge, a friendly competition between past and present campers and counselors to see who can raise the most money to support youth camp. The girls won last year’s challenge and received ice cream treats during the camp pool party and their names engraved on the challenge trophy. The winners of the 2015 challenge will also receive a special treat and recognition at the 2015 youth camp. Who will win this year challenge?
