Camp Oz is a one-week camping program for children and teens, ages 8-17, who have epilepsy. It combines a traditional camp experience with the security of a specially trained medical and behavioral staff.
Summer camp offers participants a chance to spend time away from home, experience a variety of recreational activities, and make new friends. Children and teens with seizure disorders may not always think about going to summer camp because of their medical needs, but Camp Oz addresses those concerns while remaining full of fun.
The Camp's 152 wooded acres include a waterfront, rustic cabins, a lodge for program activities, dining hall, centrally located shower and toilet facilities, chapel, health service, arts and crafts building, athletic field, and a small game area. Campers enjoy a unique summertime experience, gain a better understanding of epilepsy, learn more about their medications, and meet others who know what it's like to live with seizures. Camp is usually held during the middle of June.
