Camp Spirit is a week-long experience for girls and boys ages 7-15 with juvenile arthritis, and their siblings. Campers enjoy many camp activities in a safe and fun environment. Camp activities are plentiful and include things like tower climbing, horseback riding, swimming, crafts, campfires and team building to mention a few. Camp also allows for children with JA to form valuable life-long friendships with others who understand their journey with JA. Our schedule does allow for rest periods and we have an amazing team of healthcare nurses, Arthritis Foundation staff and JA youth mentors and volunteers who all will be onsite to assist in making a safe and fun week for campers.
