2019 JA Camp - Charlottesville, VA

The Arthritis Foundation gives children with arthritis the opportunity to make lifetime memories through camp. The specialty, residential juvenile arthritis summer camps focus on what campers can do, not what they can’t do. Campers are able to learn from others who have similar conditions and experiences. The program is designed to increase campers’ self-esteem by creating opportunities for them to meet personal challenges.
