Who Can Apply?
Families of children and young teens, ages 8-14, with a diagnosis of epilepsy or seizures may apply. To participate, campers must receive treatment for seizures and live within our region. Generally, that includes Greater Houston, East Texas, the DFW area, North Texas, and all of West Texas. Campers, however, may only attend one camp session per year.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to have a safe summer camping season, our camp medical team at Texas Children’s in Houston and EFTX has deemed it mandatory that ALL campers, volunteers, and staff MUST be fully vaccinated as a requirement to attend camp (NO EXCEPTIONS OR EXEMPTIONS). To be considered fully vaccinated you must have received both doses of the 2-dose series of the vaccine at least 2 weeks before arriving at camp.
Where is Camp?

Why Should You Go?
We believe that healing from epilepsy is as much about exercising the body as it is the brain. Fortunately, Camp Spike ‘n’ Wave is equal parts of both. Campers will find themselves physically and mentally engaged during the entire session. Moreover, they will come home with stories of their amazing adventures and even more amazing new friends. As a result, they will feel a part of something bigger than themselves. That is, they will feel like a community.
How Much Does it Cost?
Private gifts fund the entire experience. For that reason, our epilepsy camps, like Camp Spike ‘n’ Wave, are 100% free to our community of campers. So, you just worry about having a great time. Leave the rest to us!
