Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp
Save the date! The 2014 Amputee Coalition's Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp will be held on July 19-23. Applications will be available in January 2014.
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.
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.
|“The Amputee Coalition is deeply saddened by the loss of Abbey Almelien Bahn. Abbey was such a wonderful part of our youth camp and served as a counselor for several years. She touched the lives of everyone who met her and was a positive example to all. Abbey will be greatly missed. We send our thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.”|
