Camp 2012 was another unforgettable and awesome camp where kids ages 10-17 who are living with epilepsy were able to come from around the state of Colorado, Nebraska, Wyoming, and New York to have fun in the mountains with friends. Some of the highlights from the 2012 camp were horseback riding, zip-lining, rock climbing, arts/crafts, and the ropes courses. The campers learned how to Live Well with Epilepsy when special guest presenters taught them yoga, hip-hop dancing and how nutrition and diet can affect their seizures and overall health. Neurologists from Children’s Hospital voluntarily facilitated 'Ask the Doc’ sessions where the campers were able to ask questions of the doctors about epilepsy. Child Life Specialists voluntarily provided fun and experiential exercises for the children to address emotions and social issues related to living with epilepsy. Of course there were plenty of opportunities to hang out, make friendship bracelets, roller skate, miniature golf and get teams together for kickball.
