A List of our FREE Youth Programs:

Summer and Fall Camp at CCK: Center for Courageous Kids   

Have you heard of CCK? We partner with CCK twice a year to provide a FREE, fun camp experience for children with epilepsy across the state. We host a Summer Camp Experience, as well as a Fall Family Weekend Camp Experience for those impacted by epilepsy. Center for Courageous Kids has many different activities to engage your child - horseback riding, swimming, rock wall climbing, archery, arts and crafts and more, all geared towards children with different diagnoses who deserve a camp experience. 

CCK has a full medical facility on site, as well as well-trained and friendly counselors and staff to keep your child/children safe while at camp, and to ensure they have fun!

If you have not yet visited CCK or applied for our FREE camp experiences for the epilepsy community, please stay tuned for future upcoming camp dates!
