Camp Discovery

Camp Discovery 2019 was a great success! Thank you to all our
campers and volunteers!

Camp Discovery 2020 will take place August 16-19, 2020 at
Black Diamond Camps in Auburn, WA.

  • We are sorry to share that the decision was made by our COVID-19 Response Team to cancel all in-person events through October. Unfortunately, this means Camp Discovery, scheduled for August 2020, has been canceled.
  • We are saddened by this news and are planning other ways to support kids with epilepsy this summer. As an alternative to not having an in-person camp, we will be holding virtual events for children. Please watch your email and social media channels for updates on these virtual events. 

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.
