Hello Pediatric Pain Warriors!
We are so excited to share that our second annual Pediatric Pain Warrior Family Summer Camp will be held this summer at Morgan’s Wonderland Camp in San Antonio, TX, from June 25-29. This five-day summer camp designed especially for our Pediatric Pain Warriors will include educational sessions AND all of the fun camp activities like swimming, zip-lining, art, biking as well as a few surprises led by our favorite bird, Pete the Penguin!
Some important facts to know about camp:
Morgan’s Wonderland Camp is “an Ultra-Accessible™ camp for everyone with a particular emphasis on giving people with physical and developmental disabilities an opportunity to enjoy summer-camp-type activities alongside guests without special needs.”
Camp is for immediate family and caregivers only. Pediatric Pain Warriors must be under the age of 18 (at the time of camp); siblings attending can be older.
Diet is important and please be assured that all dietary restrictions will be taken into consideration. Once accepted, a comprehensive form will be sent out to each family.
The cost of the camp is covered by the U.S. Pain Foundation’s Pediatric Pain Warrior program. All travel expenses to and from the camp are each attending family’s responsibility.
*A limited number of travel scholarships will be available.
Morgan’s Wonderland Camp offers traditional camp housing which means that more than one family will be assigned per cabin. Most cabins will have two families per cabin.
The application is open until March 8. Campers will be notified of their application status by mid-March. Please direct any and all questions to Casey Cashman, Director of the Pediatric Pain Warrior Program, at [email protected].
The health and safety of all our Pediatric Pain Warriors and their families, as well our volunteers and camp staff is of utmost importance. Therefore, we will be following all COVID-19 protocols set forth by the CDC.
