The Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California’s Youth Summer Camp gives its young participants an unforgettable experience. For one week kids aged 9-16 will get together to enjoy the great outdoors and the friendships that come with a trip to camp – but also leave behind some of the challenges that epilepsy can bring to their daily lives. Surrounded – some for the first time - by dozens of other kids who know exactly what having epilepsy means, they need not worry about what people might think if they have a seizurebecause they'll be supported round the clock by physicians and nurses specialized in epilepsy care.Youth Summer Camp provides an enjoyable residential camping experience for children with epilepsy, develops self-esteem by promoting self-confidence and building lasting friendships, and fosters independence in a fun and safe environment away from home.
