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!
