JA Camp Program
The Arthritis Foundation’s JA camp programs give kids with arthritis and related childhood rheumatic diseases the chance to make lasting memories. Our programs provide a safe and secure camping experience for children and teens. Campers gain a greater understanding of their own diagnosis and treatment, develop peer-to-peer support, increase independence and self-confidence, discover new skills and interests, and develop the skills they need to be leaders, advocates and champions in their everyday lives. For many young people, attending an Arthritis Foundation camp with other kids who have JA can change their lives.
Registration will open in February.
JA Camp Programs
Our 2020 JA camp programs cost $1,300 per participant but thanks to generous donors, we can offer these JA camp programs at little or no cost. In order to serve as many children with juvenile arthritis and other childhood rheumatic diseases as possible, we ask that you only register for one camp program annually. Please consider making a donation to the Arthritis Foundation so we can continue to offer our JA camp programs at a low cost.Donate Today!
