A week long summer camp at Wisconsin Lions Camp. Camp Phoenix provides a fun, safe, residential camping experience for children ages 8-17 with a primary diagnosis of epilepsy. The week long camp is conducted at Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt, Wisconsin. The camp experience is designed to encourage independence and self-esteem, and provide children with an increased understanding of seizures and epilepsy. During the week campers participate in a variety of activities, build new and lasting relationships, and meet others who may have a similar seizure disorder. Children are encouraged to fully participate in all camp activities. Counselors are present to facilitate small group activities and one on one discussion. There is a medical staff on-site and all staff is fully trained in seizure recognition and first aid.
The Epilepsy Foundation National Kids Crew teaches children about epilepsy, encourages them to create awareness, educate others, share their stories and participate in events.
The Crew is free to join and is for ALL kids ages 14 and under!
