Camp Boggy Creek - Session 1 & 2 Information

The Arthritis Foundation partners with Camp Boggy Creek to offer children with arthritis the opportunity to make those a lifetime of memories through camp. The specialty, residential juvenile arthritis summer camps focus on what campers can do, not what they can’t do. Campers are able to learn from others who have similar conditions and experiences. The program is designed to increase campers’ self-esteem by creating opportunities for them to meet personal challenges.

The camp offers most traditional summer camp activities such as campfires and singing, canoeing, fishing, arts and crafts, swimming and nature hikes. The camp also has activities that create more of a personal challenge, while adapting to children of all abilities. Some of these activities include: accessible rope challenge course and adapted archery. All of these activities create opportunities for individual accomplishment in a positive and encouraging environment.

Open to kids with JA or other childhood rheumatic diseases who are ages 7-16.  If you have questions, please contact Mariel Armitage at marmitage@arthritis.org, or call 407-208-1766.
