Camp Independence is a pioneering program for children living with neurological diseases and is the most successful way to increase self-sufficiency. About 1 in every 1,000 children are born with SB.
50 years ago, few children born with Spina Bifida survived. Today, 90% survive.
Camp Independence was created to begin the process of positive change at a young age. Campers learn resources and skills needed to establish independence, create peer relationships, set personal goals and make a positive impact in their lives and the world around them. Most of all the prescription for camp is FUN!
