With safety in mind, we’re hosting a virtual at-home Family Camp from July 19-23, 2021. Virtual Camp offers a variety of activities from Monday to Friday. Camp starts at 10:00 AM every morning with a check-in with our staff, and continues with two activities throughout the morning. Even from home, campers and their families are able to connect with others, try new things, and have fun! In addition to the online activities, each camper receives a personalized Camp in a Box delivery that includes the items needed for their camp experience.
Family Camp is intended for youth with epilepsy ages 5+ who have additional healthcare needs, e.g. medical, emotional, developmental, social, etc. At least one adult/caregiver needs to be present for the session however the whole family is welcome.
The cost of joining Family Camp is $75 per family, with financial assistance available.
To ensure your family has best experience possible, these technology requirements are important. Please make sure you have the following:
A device that enables you to communicate with others – through a computer, tablet, or phone. A camera is preferred so that you connect with other campers, but it is not required.
Family Camp Schedule
Group Sessions (10:05-10:55 am) – All Family Camp participants will join together for these great activities.
Activity Breakouts (11:00-11:25 am) – Participants will get a chance to choose which option they want to participate in during each camp day. Every Camp in a Box will include the materials and instructions for each activity breakout option so families will be able to complete the activity they don’t choose each day on their own throughout the rest of the summer!

Thriving with Epilepsy
Meet Camper Ben
Ben Stowell has carried both friendships and memories from camp into his adult life. It helped him become more comfortable with his epilepsy, and as he puts it, "Camp Oz taught me the only job I have is to be myself, and that's the best thing there is."
