There are events that happen around the country for kids/youth/families with MS. If you know of a fun one that is not posted here, please let us know so we can share it!
Stay tuned to this page for news of a winter Buddy Bash in the Midwest! Oscar is working hard to make sure this can happen soon! This bash will be for families who have kids with MS.
National MS Society in Texas - all are welcome! Champ Camp is a three-day, two-night camp for children diagnosed with MS and their families. It allows them to get out of their everyday routine and experience what it is like to be at "camp." Champ Camp offers a variety of educational and recreational experiences for both the parents and the children. Some activities include fishing, canoeing, arts and crafts, parties, archery, zip lining, horseback riding and making s'mores around the campfire. It is a fantastic experience for all!
Held mid-March at Camp For All in Burton, TX
There is no charge to attend this camp but everyone is responsible for their own transportation. The camp is open to families outside of Texas. Space is limited.
Teen Adventure Camp
Rhode Island - Join teens from all over the country as they gather to play, share, and grow!
Lifelong friendships are the greatest souvenir from camp!
This camp is held each July for kids 13-18. Many campers return year after year and continue to return as mentors once they enter college. The kids and adults form extra special bonds as they never have to explain their illness to others - they can just have fun playing and learning together.

Typically, those with MS prefer to stay out of the heat. Emily and Oscar look for fun activities to do that allow them to get exercise, enjoy the outdoors, and stay cool! Please send us links to your ideas for your part of the country/world!
