Arthritis camp helps kids see they're not alone
The Arthritis Foundation in 2003 established Camp Dakota, a summer camp for kids. Its facilities are similar to those at most camps – a swimming and fishing pond, nature center, trails, activity fields and, of course, a large campfire pit suitable for any marshmallow roast and sing-along.
