Camp Spirit is a week-long camping experience for boys and girls aged 8-15 living with juvenile arthritis and other rheumatic conditions and their siblings. Camp staff and volunteers strive to provide campers with a camping experience that includes a campfire, archery, arts and crafts, theme nights, swimming, sports and other activities in an environment that takes into account the campers strengths and not the limitations of the campers disease. Getting to know others who live with the same disease that they have allows campers to build friendships that last a lifetime.
