Considering the current data and recommendation that physical distancing and precautions remain in place for the foreseeable future, we have determined that it is in the best interest of our patients, families, volunteers, and staff to cancel Children’s camps for Summer 2020. As a result, Camp Krazy Legs will be cancelled for the week of July 19-24. At this time, a decision has not been made about Family Camps or Teen Retreats scheduled to take place this fall. Our teams will continue to monitor the situation and plan accordingly. To learn more and see up to date information about the virus, please visit choa.org/covid19.
Please contact Catherine Shields at Catherine.email@example.com with any questions or if you are a new camper or volunteer interested in being placed on a contact list.
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Camp Twin Lakes and the Spina Bifida Association of Georgia have partnered to offer Camp Krazy Legs. This overnight summer camp is for children and teens with spina bifida who meet the eligibility criteria.
Every child needs to feel special. A child with spina bifida is no different. We promote positive self-esteem with fun and learning. The only requirements are to laugh, play, grow and explore.
Our progressive program helps children and teens learn, develop and practice independent living skills in a fun camp format, using games, group activities, workshops, sports and community outings to teach and reinforce these life skills.
- Physical/mobility skills Social/communication skills
- Self-healthcare/medical skills (bladder and bowel training, dressing)
- Educational/vocational skills
- Cognitive skills (memory, sequencing, organization, decision making, problem solving)
- Integration into the home, school and community setting
- Leadership training (ages 17 and 18)
Applications will be available in early 2020.
