The Amputee Coalition thrives on peer support. That is why we are excited to announce our in-person Summer CAMP.
We know the value of our campers and counselors connecting face to face each summer. We have developed innovative and inclusive ways for our campers to bond together. The Amputee Coalition understands that there are unique challenges for young people experiencing limb loss/limb difference and their caregivers. Our in-person youth camp can help these young people connect with peers, explore new experiences, and grow in their confidence and awareness.
Camp creates a space for Campers, Leaders in Training, and Counselors to have fun, connect, and make lifelong friendships so no one goes through the limb loss/limb difference journey alone. We have some exciting activities lined up this year including sports, creative arts, and STEM projects.
Most importantly, there will be time for campers to hang out with old and new friends and engage in peer support.
We can’t wait to Explore a new camp this summer, Connect with each other, and Grow by learning and doing new activities together.
