Brainy Camps Association (BCA) of Children’s National is a consortium of residential camps, family camps and programs for children with chronic health conditions. The conditions served include high functioning autism spectrum disorders, Tourette syndrome, neurofibromatosis, epilepsy, sickle cell anemia, type 1 diabetes, heart disorders, Down syndrome, hydrocephalus, and cerebral palsy. We also offer a series of cooking classes for families with children at risk for obesity, family camps for young children with type 1 diabetes, a transitions camp for young adults, online support groups, and leadership training. During the fall and winter, we train teens to serve as peer counselors, giving them the tools to provide support and reduce the social isolation experienced by children with chronic health conditions. Our camps are run in collaboration with many of the healthcare organizations connected to the conditions served.
On Saturday, October 20, our team is participating in Children’s National's 6th annual Race for Every Child 5K and Kids Dash at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. Please join us in making a difference for kids in our community.
Your support of the Race for Every Child helps Brainy Camps and Children’s National's ensure that every child in our community gets world-class care and a place to be a kid - regardless of ability to pay.
