A Supportive Community
The purpose of all Brainy Camps programs and services is to build a community of support in order to improve the lives of individuals with chronic health conditions, illnesses and other life challenges. We promote a network of communities that includes partners, children, families, board members, staff and everyone involved in our campers’ lives.
Brainy Camps provides a safe environment to physically and emotionally challenged children, teenagers and adults to offer positive experiences for them and their families.
Brainy Camps inspires children, teenagers, and adults to achieve their fullest potential by fostering education, independence, coping skills, growth and leadership, Campers leave the camp empowered to face life’s obstacles with new skills and a network of emotional support.
Quality of Care
Brainy Camps is committed to excellence in everything that we do. We continually work with experts in the field to try new approaches to care and evaluation to meet the needs of our children, teens, adults and families and to improve the services we provide.
Brainy Camps encourages children and teens with chronic health conditions to learn about their disorder and to establish partnerships with health care professionals, while navigating and learning ways to directly manage their condition together. When campers and medical staff work together, children learn to become more assertive and stronger self-advocates, as well as serving as role models for other children and peers.
All funds raised for Brainy Camps go directly to cover operations and camper scholarships. Additionally, donations made to support the development and improvement of our campsite are placed in a fund created solely for that purpose.
