Overnight and Day Camps

Frosty Fun Day for Siblings and kids of parents with epilepsy

For siblings and kids of parents with epilepsy
Location varies
Stay tuned for upcoming FFD events

The Frosty Fun Day Series is a day camp for siblings of those with epilepsy and kids of parents with epilepsy. Epilepsy affects the whole family and this day camp is for youth in the family who are closely affected yet are not diagnosed with epilepsy.  This day is an opportunity for the youth to identify and express common difficult emotions in a fun and interesting venue while encouraging them to get support and make new friends.  

Why would this day camp be important for my child?
Sibling relationships have a long standing influence on the lives of both siblings.  When one sibling has a disability, research has shown that the relationship often centers around caretaking, rather than shared playing. While it is true that siblings of those with disabilities often develop positive qualities such as compassion, patience and empathy, they also often struggle with difficult emotions such as anger, confusion, resentment and worry.   We believe  that many of these dynamics can also be applied to a child of a parent with epilepsy.  For the siblings and the children of parents with epilepsy, it is important to acknowledge and address these needs.  The Frosty Fun Day Series is an opportunity to address the needs of these children and we encourage you to consider getting your child involved in this fun and therapeutic day.
