Summer Camp Experience Possible Through Donor Dollars

For many children, the traditional summer camp experience—horseback riding, campfires, being away from home for the first time—is part of growing up. But for some children, traditional summer camp isn’t always possible because of health restrictions caused by chronic illnesses.

Thankfully, because of dollars given through Community Health Charities (CHC-NE), children with chronic health issues are able to attend medically-specific camps, which not only give them a summer camp experience, but also allow them to meet and spend time with other kids who share the same needs and experiences they do.

If you are interested in attending or volunteering at a camp, here are five that CHC-NE member charities are offering this year:

  • Camp SuperKids, American Lung Association (402-502-4950). June 14 to June 20 at YMCA Camp of the Okoboji’s in Storm Lake, Iowa.
  • MDA Summer Camp, Muscular Dystrophy Association of Nebraska (402-390-2914). June 14 to June 19 at Camp Comeca in Cozad, Nebraska. 
  • Camp Tap-A-Vein-A-Day-A, National Hemophilia Foundation, Nebraska Chapter (402-742-5663). August 21 to 23 at the Eastern NE 4-H Camp in Gretna, Nebraska.
  • Camp Oasis, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, Nebraska/Iowa Chapter (402-505-9901.) July 27 to August 1 at One Heartland in Willow River, Minnesota.
  • Camp Spirit, Arthritis Foundation, Heartland Chapter (402-330-6130). June 14 to June 20 at YMCA Camp Kitaki in Louisville, Nebraska.

Staff Sergeant Mark Thompson convinced the Army that having type-1 diabetes should not keep him from serving in Iraq. Thompson, 28, is an Iowa native. He has been married for nine years and has a son, Kyle, who is two years old. He has always had something of a travel bug, and it was this desire to see the world that inspired Thompson to join the Army. That, and the stories he heard from his college roommate -- an older student who had served in the Vietnam War. As Thompson listened, the Army started to sound like an adventure.
