The Family & Youth Conference is a three day event which is designed to deliver relevant educational presentations and workshops to help individuals gain knowledge and information they need to help better manage their epilepsy.
We have programs which take place for the adults, the youth and the children.
For the children, some of these activities include pony rides, rock climbing, archery and more! Activities are delivered in a safe environment with camp counselors trained in handling and managing seizures if they occur. The youth programming consists of a mixture of fun activities such as horse back riding, rock climbing, archery and more, as well as educational workshops to help increase life skills and independence.
The adult programming is based on the current needs and relevant topics within our clientele base, to help adults living with epilepsy, as well as parents of children living with epilepsy, gain more knowledge and skills to help support themselves and their family members.
Of course we also have fun activities for everyone to come together such as nightly camp fires and a dance party! Bringing everyone together is very empowering for individuals and families to help them feel connected and know they are not alone. It is a great opportunity for people to network and find additional sources of support.
