Epilepsy Association of Western and Central PA - Camp Frog
Children with epilepsy, like all children, need to experience and enjoy outdoor recreation. The EAWCP sponsors two weeklong, overnight summer camping programs called Camp Frog. This nationally recognized activity allows kids with epilepsy/seizure disorders to be integrated into a typical camping experience with hundreds of other children. The overnight program is available to boys and girls with epilepsy/seizure disorders from ages 8-17 who have completed 3rd grade but not yet graduated high school. Campers enjoy a host of activities, such as arts and crafts, campfire sing-alongs, swimming, team games, sailing, archery, and horseback riding. Camp staffs include EFWCP counselors, with additional support from medical staff. All camp staff members receive specialized training in seizure recognition and first aid. Medical staff includes a licensed pediatric neurologist and a registered nurse practitioner. Scholarships and financial assistance are available to eligible campers.
