Camp Blackhawk for Youth with Epilepsy 2018

Sunday, July 29, 2018, All Day

Camp Red Leaf, 26710 W. Nippersink Road, Ingleside

Free weeklong retreat for kids and teens with epilepsy.

Each summer, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago’s Camp Blackhawk gives youth ages 6-17 an opportunity to come together and enjoy all the fun activities and friendships that come with a trip to camp, while leaving behind the various challenges epilepsy can bring to their daily lives.

Campers can experience swimming, zip lining, boating and campfires while in a safe and medically monitored setting.

There is no cost to attend camp, however, donations are accepted and welcomed.

The second session is scheduled for July 29 through Aug. 3.

Please be aware that space is limited and campers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority acceptance will be given to people within the Foundation’s service area.
