Wacky Winter Weekend®–summer camp, but much cooler!
Some young people with epilepsy have environmental triggers. These may include warm temperatures and allergies. As a result, some avoid epilepsy camps altogether! With our Wacky Winter Weekend, campers enjoy all of the activities made available to Camp Spike ‘n’ Wave campers. This experience, however, takes place during the winter! It combines the outdoors and experiences of camp life with camaraderie and team building. It is a truly cool experience. Wacky Winter Weekend is for children and teens with epilepsy and/or seizure diagnosis between the ages of 6-17 along with a sibling or family member within the same age range.
This event is supported by private gifts. As a result, our Wacky Winter Weekend is greatly discounted.
Our Wacky Winter Weekend is located on the Camp for All grounds in Burton, TX, Its features include:
Swimming pool (with wheelchair lift)
Arts and crafts
Reptiles (snakes and lizards, oh my!)
Camp News Network (a news network produced by campers)
Who Can Apply?
Children and teens, ages 6-17, with a seizure diagnosis may apply. Siblings or family members within the same age range may also apply. To participate, campers must receive treatment for epilepsy. Also, they must live in our region. That includes Greater Houston, East Texas, the DFW area, North Texas, and all of West Texas. Campers may only attend one camp session per year.
Where is Camp?
Wacky Winter Weekend takes place at beautiful Camp for All. The campgrounds are located at 6301 Rehburg Road in Burton, Texas. Burton is approximately 90 miles northwest of Houston.
Why Should You Go?
We believe that healing from epilepsy is as much about exercising the body as it is the brain. Fortunately, Wacky Winter Weekend is equal parts of both. During the session, campers will find themselves physically and mentally engaged. As a result, campers will feel like a part of something bigger than themselves. That is, they will feel like a community.
How Much Does it Cost?
Private gifts support Wacky Winter Weekend. Consequently, we make the experience as close to free as possible. The cost to attend is:
1 camper- $150
2 campers- $275
3 campers- $375
Installment plans are available. Additionally, we offer eight partial scholarships for those in need. To discuss your options further, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 888-548-9716.
