Summer Camp Experience Possible Through Donor Dollars

For many children, the traditional summer camp experienceóhorseback riding, campfires, being away from home for the first timeóis part of growing up. But for some children, traditional summer camp isnít 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 Okobojiís 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.
