2020 Juvenile Arthritis Camps

JA Camp Update
The Arthritis Foundations’ top priority is the health and safety of our families, volunteers and staff. After careful review of the growing seriousness, community spread and ongoing uncertainty of the coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as the strain on our important health care volunteers, the Arthritis Foundation has made following actions in regards to our camp programs:  
  • We have made the difficult decision to not host our JA Camps through the end of June.
  • We are exploring ways to offer this important time of connection and personal growth through virtual means.
  • Camps scheduled July – year end are continuing to proceed as planned, with daily reviews of this decision. For those camps, we are actively working with our medical and facility leadership teams from each camp location to enhance pre-camp procedures and screening protocols, as well as onsite policies, to ensure the safest possible environment at camp.
We will continue to keep you updated as new information becomes available. For update information on Coronavirus and Arthritis, visit arthritis.org

*Please note the below camps in RED will not be hosted in person. We will be offering a virtual opportunity for these campers.
