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 Independence will be cancelled for the week of July 12-17. 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.
Weeklong summer camp for children and teens
Camp Independence is a weeklong summer camp experience for children and teens, ages 8 to 18, who have been diagnosed with kidney disease, are on dialysis or have received a life-saving organ transplant.
From team-building activities to individual support, Camp Independence has something for everyone. With the help of a full medical staff, parents can rest assured that their child will be in good hands. Our licensed medical professionals provide around-the-clock, on-site medical care the entire week of camp.
Made possible through the generous support of private foundations, corporations and individuals, Camp Independence gives every child the chance to experience camp, build friendships and make memories to last a lifetime.
