Serve as a counselor and help mentor youth ages 10-17 through a traditional camp experience
Nearly 150 kids will participate in “Amp Camp” and you can help make it more memorable!
We’ve had great interest in Youth Camp, and will continue to accept applications for the wait list. We will notify you in late April of your application status, too. Send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Amputee Coalition’s Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp is a 6-day, traditional summer camp experience for youth ages 10-17 with limb loss / limb differences. Campers are challenged to increase independence, test themselves, and build new friendships through fun and exciting activities in a caring and supportive environment. We recommend applying early, since in past years there has been a waiting list to attend camp.
All camp costs are covered, including transportation.Submit Your Application Today!
One parent said
“The benefits for my child were deep. I expected it to be fun, but I did NOT expect her to find out she is a leader, that she can help others and that she is not alone. In addition, she could really be herself for the first time since her illness and amputation- she was not able to ‘hide’ behind her prosthetic and the real kid came out! It was life- changing actually!”

The average cost to send a child to camp is just $2,000, and parents and kids alike say that there is nothing like this experience. Since its beginning in 2000, the camp has hosted more than 1,100 campers!
