Camp Super Smile offers people with Down syndrome (ages 9 and above) four days and three nights of summer fun and social connections.
Camp Super Smile was developed by Brainy Camps in conjunction with the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Genetics of Children’s National Health System. The goal of Camp Super Smile is to create a safe environment where campers have lots of summer fun, while reducing their social isolation, promoting their independence, and improving their self-esteem.
Parents can feel comfortable that their children are under the care of trained and experienced doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals. Dr. Amy Kao, child neurologist at Children’s National, and her medical team of nurses, social workers, and psychologists are responsible for the medical care at the camp.
Campers participate in a wide range of activities. They are encouraged to make connections with other campers and try new behaviors. Independence is strongly encouraged throughout the camp session.
