The annual Amputee Coalition of America (ACA) Youth Camp provides youth with limb differences (ages 10 to 16) four fun-filled days of educational outings, team-building exercises, sports and opportunities to learn from peers and adult amputee mentors. Starting in 2007, the camp will have a junior counselor program for 17 yr. olds that have attended camp in the past and have exhibited strong leadership qualities.

This summer residential program provides a socially stimulating environment where these youths can meet others like themselves. There is no cost for attendees, but donations are accepted and much appreciated. For more information on the camp or how to donate, please visit the Youth Activities Program (YAP) Camp page on the ACA�s Web site at, e-mail:, or call Derrick Stowell, ACA Youth Activities Program Coordinator, at 888/267-5669 x 8130.
