our weeklong overnight camp for youth with skeletal dysplasia & their siblings!
What is Camp Like?
Our camp operates as follows:
- We have three meals together as an entire camp, four structured activity periods, two free periods, and an all-camp evening activity
- Campers sign up for daytime activities prior to camp and stay within age-appropriate groups
- Campers sleep in cabins with others of the same age group
- Campers are under the direct care of camp counselors at all times; a nurse is on grounds 24 hours a day. Some counselors are members of the LP community and some are average height.
- We operate as a typical overnight camp; do not focus on our differences, we just let our kids be kids!
- Campers interact the old fashioned way - no video games, Internet, or cell phones. Music players are allowed.
- We have camp security on the premises 24/7/365 !
For the privacy of our campers' families, the exact location of our camp may be obtained by contacting us.
