Camp About Face began in 1988 and is specially designed to benefit youth ages 8-18 with craniofacial anomalies. Typical camping activities are provided. Activities include swimming, nature projects, campouts, etc., supplemented by social work, medical support and educational sessions to help build self-esteem and self-confidence.
Camp provides many special opportunities for the children to develop supportive relationships and long lasting friendships with others who identify with them and can share similar life experiences. Teen campers 15-18 are offered opportunities for leadership, teambuilding, off-site camping and group challenges.
A one-week summer program, Camp About Face is promoted by the Craniofacial Program at Riley Hospital for Children, which is located at 702 Barnhill Dr. Indianapolis, IN 46202.
