Northwest Kidney Kids
We are highlighting transplant camps for the month of June.
For the second week of June we are highlighting Northwest Kidney Kids in Turner, Oregon.
Northwest Kidney Kids offers two Camps Programs – Family Camp and Youth Camp. Both are held at the Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center in Turner, Oregon during August, the Kidney Camp experience provides a safe environment for children and families to gather for educational, parent and youth enrichment, emotional support, camaraderie and networking. Participants receive support from professionals who understand these challenges, and children and parents offer meaningful support to one another and develop friendships that extend beyond Camp. Kidney Camp encourages campers to see life beyond their disease while addressing the emotional issues associated with kidney disease and empowering Kidney Kids to achieve lifelong success.
Camp is one week and is held during the month of August. Families from Oregon and SouthWest Washington are prioritized, after that they are glad to welcome kidney kids from any other state. Open registration is April through June. And camp is free of charge to all participants. Youth camp is open to a child who is experiencing end stage renal failure and who has had a transplant or will need one by the end of high school.
