Brainy Camps of Children's National

Our mission is to help youth with chronic health conditions live well and reach their potential. We advance these goals through our week-long condition-specific residential summer camps, as well as through year-round support and leadership programs. Our programs provide children with chronic illnesses the opportunities to meet peers, mentors and counselors with the same conditions and discover that they are not alone in the world. 

We currently provide camp experiences for children, teenagers and young adults with the following conditions, and more:

We serve over 500 campers each summer with an interdisciplinary team of over 150 medical experts, professionals and students offering their time and knowledge to ensure camper safety and enjoyment. Our campers come from all over the US, Puerto Rico and Canada, with a smattering of campers from other countries around the world.
