Epilepsy Foundation Arizona

EF Arizona
Over 77,000 People in Arizona are Living with Epilepsy

The Epilepsy Foundation Arizona provides programs and services that support people and families impacted by epilepsy. With the strength of a national organization and network of epilepsy experts, EFAZ provides national scope and local impact.


From ground breaking research to SUDEP support, local educational programs and a 24/7 Helpline, Epilepsy Foundation Arizona is here to serve you.


We are leading the fight to END EPILEPSY® in Arizona by supporting and mobilizing the epilepsy community through educational activities, direct services, advocacy, as well as research to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives. The Foundation also seeks to educate the general public to better understand epilepsy and seizure disorders, including knowing proper seizure first aid.

Programs & Resources


Camp Candlelight




What age do I need to be?

This year we have switched from ages to grades. That means, instead of campers being from 7-16, campers will now be going into 2nd grade – Senior Year in High School.  Seniors will be considered Leaders in Training. They will NOT attend Staff Training, but they will have their own schedule at camp. That means that people are eligible to be a CIT the Summer AFTER senior year.


What is the application process like?

Your application is not official until it is 100% completed and submitted.  Starting the application does not reserve a spot for your camper.


Who is on Staff? Will my child be safe?

All of our camp volunteers go through training and a background check.  Many have been volunteering with the Epilepsy Foundation for years!  For medical staff we partner with Phoenix Children’s Hospital and local  epilepsy centers to provide nurses, doctors, epileptologists, and medical  assistants to provide the best medical care for your children!


How much does it cost?

Thanks to the generosity of donors and fundraising events supporting EF Arizona, we are able to offer camp $35 per camper.  If you are unable to pay that amount, please reach out to Allie Anderson at aanderson@efa.org and we can chat about options.


Is transportation provided?

Transportation is not provided, and will be the responsibility of the camper/parent to get to camp on time and pick up their camper on time.
