How One Community Gets Behind Children With Special Needs

Written by Craig Rogers, in Section Positive Parenting

This Community Has It’s Act Together and Serving Special Needs Children and Families

“Not another moment lost to seizures” is the tagline for the Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego County. Every summer, the foundation sponsors Camp Quest for kids age 8-12, a five-night residential camp experience for children with epilepsy. The camp is free to kids who have the condition and runs in conjunction with the YMCA’s Camp Marston. Kids do activities such as archery, canoeing, crafts, swimming, and sports.

A nurse attends the kids to dispense medications, follow any special instructions, and ensure the safety of the child with epilepsy as well as that of additional volunteer counselors. But since the kids are mingled with other campers, it is up to them to tell the other campers about their epilepsy. Campers must be able to care for their own basic needs, follow directions, and participate in most regular camp activities. Application available at www.epilepsysandiego.org. Campers are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. July 15-20.
