Camp.Stroll picEpilepsy Foundation Texas has the largest summer camping program for children & teens with epilepsy in the country. The Foundation offers a week of adventure and independence to children who, without these camps, would not be able to participate in a program of this magnitude. At camp, children get to tackle the challenges presented by epilepsy in a safe, medically supervised environment full of fun activities such as zip lining, canoeing, swimming, horse-back riding, and fishing. Another important aspect is that campers have the opportunity to interact with people who are going through similar experiences. Our camp program just celebrated its 25th anniversary and we are excited to say that we have been able to provide nearly 5,000 children and teens with seizures the experience of a lifetime…SUMMER CAMP!
