Registration is now open for Camp New Friends July 16- July 22, 2023
Started in 2004, Camp New Friends is a condition-specific camp for children with neurofibromatosis ages 7-17 located on the beautiful grounds of Blue Ridge School located in Virginia. Camp New Friends offers children a safe place to make lifelong social connections and memories. Campers will have their days filled with summer fun while learning valuable skills and a better understanding of their capabilities and strengths.
Kids from the NF Midwest community have been going to camp for almost 20 years! It’s a amazing program and children are well cared for. Camp New Friends volunteers and staff are on grounds 24 hours a day and include NF medical personnel such as physicians, nurses, social workers, counselors, physical therapist and psychologist.
Camp cost is $1200 per camper, plus travel. However, NF Midwest will provide scholarship assistance for travel and camp fees to campers from our service areas: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Wisconsin, and the Eastern half of Missouri. Applications for financial assistance are made through Camp New Friends/Brainy Camps and NF Midwest reimburses them. For more information or to register please click on the following links.
