Camp Flame Catcher is uniquely designed to give children with epilepsy the typical camping experience that their peers enjoy with the added guidance of trained epilepsy specialists to care for their specific needs. There are educational programs that take place throughout the session to help the campers learn about their epilepsy and ways to cope with its challenges. The children have the opportunity to establish friendships with other children who also have epilepsy and hopefully develop a lasting support system in their lives. Most of all though, the kids have a GREAT time at camp. They take part in such activities as: hiking, arts & crafts, swimming, archery, horseback riding, fishing, boating, shooting BB guns, canoeing, kayaking, hay rides, singing, scaling a climbing wall and much, much more. Camp Flame Catcher creates memories to last a lifetime!
The camp takes place on the wooded grounds of Camp Kern in Warren County, located near Kings Island Amusement Park.
The cost of camp is $200.00 for the weekend camps and $400.00 for the summer week of camp. If needed, there is financial assistance available through our generous supporters. The Epilepsy Alliance Ohio is committed to all kids who want to attend camp and will work with everyone to make their attendance at camp possible!
