Camps

The goals of camp are for TSRHC patients to foster independence and self-confidence, while developing and improving communication and problem solving skills in an enjoyable "can do" setting. Campers are supervised 24 hours a day by counselors made up of staff and volunteers from TSRHC.

In order for a child to be considered for camp, he/she must be an active patient of TSRHC and meet specific criteria. First parents must complete a camp application. Once the application is received, the child's medical record and application will be reviewed and considered based on eligibility and availability.
