Summer Camp For Kids With Ostomies

Youth Rally is a week long summer camp providing mentoring and support services for kids with Crohn’s disease, Colitis, Vader’s Syndrome, and a variety of other autoimmune disorders. Throughout the week, camp attendees from 12 to 17 find new friends, go on a one day trip to an amusement park or the beach, and learn valuable quality of life lessons through confidence building workshops. It’s a place to hang with people with similar stories.

Youth Rally, according to the webite, "...is devoted to providing a positive atmosphere of support, learning, and personal growth for youths with bowel and/or bladder dysfunction. Every year the Youth Rally teaches campers that everybody, regardless of any medical or physical differences, matters as a person and has the ability to achieve their goals...For over 30 years the Youth Rally has been a place for adolescents with ostomies and continent diversions, or who are preparing for surgery, to come together and meet other young people who deal with similar life experiences."
