Kid's Corner

There are nearly 7,800 kids in Colorado who have epilepsy. That means, if you have epilepsy, you are not alone. It’s not always easy to live with this condition, but connecting with other kids who know what you’re going through can help.

Opportunities for Kids

The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado has a variety of programs that you can get involved in. Learn more about our summer camps, pen pal program, youth council, and Kids Crew below.

Camps

Rock n’ Rally and Jason’s Camp provide opportunities for children and teens whose lives are impacted by epilepsy to build confidence, make new friends and have fun. Our summer camps fuel kids with the knowledge that they are not alone on their epilepsy journey. Connecting with other campers fosters resiliency, joy, and a sense of belonging.  In 2021, we hope to return to our regular in-person camps. If this is not possible, camps will be held virtually in July 2021, providing connection, fun, skill-building, and keeping the camp culture alive!

Youth Leadership Opportunities

Youth living with epilepsy who become involved in leadership can give back to the epilepsy community while having many wonderful opportunities.  Youth who participate in our leadership programs can develop important life skills, gain confidence, become a leader and engage with others who are living with epilepsy.

Youth Council

Youth Council is for teens/young adults ages 14-22 who have been diagnosed with epilepsy or are a sibling or a child of a parent who has been diagnosed with epilepsy. If you are compelled to make a difference and speak out about epilepsy, this could be the opportunity for you! To join or for more information, contact us.

Kids Crew

Kids Crew is for youth under 14 years old who are affected by epilepsy.  If you are a natural born leader and want to speak out about epilepsy, this may be the opportunity for you.

Teens Speak Up!

Teens Speak Up! is one of our centerpiece advocacy initiatives. Every year, one lucky teen and their parent or caregiver joins over 150 other advocates from around the nation, including Epilepsy Foundation affiliate staff, parents, teens, doctors, and volunteers, in Washington DC to speak with Congress and share their stories of living with epilepsy.

Teens Speak Up! provides an opportunity for teens with epilepsy and their parents to visit the nation’s capital, receive advocacy training, meet with their legislators, and tell their personal stories. 

Teens are nominated by Foundation staff and selected by the National Epilepsy Foundation to participate in the program. After receiving training at TSU, each teen is asked to turn that training into action back here in Colorado through the Year of Service program.  If your teen is interested in learning more, please contact us!  Information about recent TSU events can be found here.
