Camp KODA (Kids Out to Defeat Arthritis) gives kids ages 8-17, with arthritis and related conditions, the chance to make lasting memories. For many campers, it’s the first time they’ve met other kids who live with the same challenges and limitations. Camps feature traditional summer camping activities, such as campfires, singing and storytelling, arts and crafts, swimming, archery, ropes course and more. The camaraderie enjoyed at JA camps results in lasting friendships. The camp experience helps kids develop independence and build self-confidence.

Registration will open February 15! Register at www.arthritis.org/jacamps. For questions please contact Katie Levine at klevine@arthritis.org or 406-201-5341.
