The Center for Courageous Kids - Group Shot

Last year, 15 children with epilepsy from all over Indiana got the chance to “just be kids” during a special weekend retreat at the Center for Courageous Kids in Scottsville, Kentucky.

The center is a world class medical camp that features all of the traditional camping activities in an environment that is safe and fun for children living with medical challenges such as seizure disorders. Private family lodging and meals are provided. 

Campers enjoy horsebackriding, archery, woodshop, arts and crafts, indoor swimming, bowling and more.

The chance for families affected by epilepsy to share common experiences and support one another is a valuable benefit of the camp.

This camp experience is made possiblel through the generosity of volunteer leaders that host an annual golf tournament.  Proceeds from the golf tournament pay for families to attend camp.  Check out photos: Family Camping Weekend album
