Upcoming Events

2019 JA Day-Ashley, OH

2019 JA Day-Ashley, OH

7/27/2019 to 7/27/2019

JA Days are a great experience for children with juvenile arthritis (JA), their parents, caregivers and siblings. The greatest benefit of these programs is getting to meet and network with other families who are affected by JA and share some of the same feelings, experiences and concerns. It's a place to exchange ideas, give and receive encouragement, make new friends and know you're not alone.

Our JA Family Day program at Recreation Unlimited will feature traditional summer camp activities such as fishing, exploring nature, swimming and toasting s’mores by a campfire. In addition to these fun and safe activities, kids and their families will be provided with information and education from experts at Nationwide Children’s Hospital that will help them to live better with juvenile arthritis and other childhood rheumatic disease.

This camp day is FREE to all families affected by juvenile arthritis and other childhood rheumatic disease.
