About Kids Camp:
The goal of Kids Camp is to provide children with chronic kidney disease the opportunity to enjoy an exciting summer camp adventure complete with the great outdoors, campfires, sing-a-longs, water activities, and new friends! Each year more children participate in the Kids Camp experience. We invite your child to join us this summer for an unforgettable adventure.
Kids will enjoy the wonderful outdoors while riding horses, singing songs, boating, high ropes, hiking woodland trails, playing games, swimming, riding the zipline, creating arts and crafts, sitting around the campfire and much, much more!
Hemodialysis campers will be transported to a Fresenius Unit in Flint for dialysis treatments on Wednesday during camp week. Hemodialysis nurses and nephrologists from Children’s Hospital of Michigan, the University of Michigan Mott Hospital and DeVos Children’s Hospital will be in residence at camp through out the entire week, 24 hours a day. Nurses accompany hemodialysis campers to dialysis, assist with CAPD exchanges and dispense medications to all campers.
Attending Kids Camp:
If your child is age 8-16 and has chronic kidney disease, an exciting summer adventure is waiting just for them! Kids Camp is a special week of laughter, games, and outdoor fun designed for the special needs of your child. This year will be the 31st consecutive Kids Camp hosted by YMCA Camp Copneconic in Fenton, Michigan.
