Camp Discovery

Thank you to all our campers and volunteers who have made

Camp Discovery a great success for over 30 years!


Camp Discovery 2021 will tentatively take place August 15-18, 2021 at
Black Diamond Camps in Auburn, WA.

  • Our COVID-19 Response Team will continue to monitor the situation and safety guidelines of the CDC and Washington State. Camp Registration will be available when it is deemed safe for us to officially hold Camp Discovery 2021. Camper and volunteer safety is always our main priority. 

About Camp Discovery

For four days, children with epilepsy (ages 7-16), enjoy all the fun activities and friendships that come with a classic trip to summer camp. While partaking in camp adventures and entertainment, the children are able to leave behind various challenges epilepsy can bring to their daily lives. At Camp Discovery, campers are surrounded by dozens of other campers who have epilepsy and share in many of the same experiences stemming from the seizure disorder. Camp is often the first time many children meet others their age with epilepsy. Imagine the unique opportunity children have by not worrying about what people think if they have a seizure or if they will be excluded from activities just because they are different. At Camp Discovery, epilepsy is the norm.

Camp Discovery features activities such as: rock climbing, high ropes course, swimming, Art Therapy, epilepsy informational sessions and nature hikes. More important than the activities, Camp Discovery is an opportunity to bond with other children who experience a seizure disorder.

Siblings ages 7-16 are welcome to join. First sibling is free. Additional siblings are $150/each.
