The Take a Swing at NF Golf Benefit provides funds to send kids from the Midwest who have neurofibromatosis to Camp New Friends. It also supports other programs for kids at NF Midwest.

Formed by social workers from the Children’s National Medical Center, Camp New Friends (CNF) offers children and teens with NF seven days and six nights of summer fun and social connections. Camp New Friends serves to reduce the stigma and isolation that is often associated with neurological disorders and chronic health conditions. The camp also provides parents with respite.

Condition specific camps such as this have proven to be an effective way for children to learn more about their condition and to develop adaptive behaviors. At Camp New Friends, children learn from peers and adult volunteers who live effectively with these same health conditions and are offered hope for the future.

Neurofibromatosis Midwest C.A.R.E.S. to improve the lives of the increasing number of men, women and children challenged by neurofibromatosis. Supporting the camp and helping kids from the Midwest attend is a vital stepping stone towards this goal.

People may still register to golf or attend the dinner. Donations may also be made for our camp/kid’s programs.
