This four-day educational conference focuses on health, wellness and fun for families and children affected by JA and related childhood rheumatic diseases.

Camp JAM (Juvenile Arthritis Matters) is a family camp which gives kids with arthritis and related conditions along with their parents and siblings the chance to make lasting memories. The camp experience helps families gain a greater understanding of the juvenile arthritis diagnosis and treatment, develop peer-to-peer support and increase independence and self-confidence. Family camp offers a chance to meet other families going through similar challenges, share stories, learn, and make fun memories together. Register at www.arthritis.org/jacamps.
