Our summer camp offers a broad spectrum of exciting activities designed to connect teens ages 13-17 living with epilepsy.

Rock n’ Rally is located at the Cal-Wood Education Center in Jamestown designed to connect children ages 8-12 living with epilepsy. This overnight weekend camp allows a child with seizures to focus on what they CAN do through the support and encouragement of caring peers and camp staff. This is often a child’s first time away from home so we realize the importance of making this a positive, safe experience. It can be a great place to build confidence, make new friends, have fun in the great outdoors and learn more about epilepsy. To insure the safety of the campers, we have a team of licensed medical staff on-site at all times along with experienced counselors. The cost is $150 and scholarships are available.
Our Circle of Friends groups provide educational and emotional support in a positive environment for people living with epilepsy and their families. Circle of Friends groups are led by trained volunteers who have personal experience with epilepsy. To join a support group or explore a leadership role call 303.377.9774 or 888.378.9779 or email us.
Community education programs are extensive across the state, including urban, suburban, and rural outreach which include seminars and presentations to educators, nurses, students of all ages, law enforcement and employers about seizure recognition and first aid.

Advocacy initiatives identify key issues at the state level impacting people with epilepsy and coordinates grassroots efforts to reach local government with one unified voice. The Foundation also serves on key committees to impact health care reform and other critical legislation impacting people with epilepsy.
Unique opportunities throughout the year are organized and publicized to broaden the knowledge base and social experiences of all our constituents, including sporting activities, presentations by well know figures in our community, conferences for special interest groups, such as "Women Living with Epilepsy", bowling nights and ice cream socials.
