Welcome to Teen Getaway!
The Epilepsy Foundation Western/Central PA invites teens with epilepsy/seizure disorder ages 13 to 18 on a weekend camp retreat in Stoystown,PA. Teen Getaway provides fun, meaningful and safe programming for everyone. We encourage you to bring a friend or sibling in the same age group to share this great experience with you!
What is Teen Getaway?
The weekend will involve many activities ranging from team building exercises, art, a group discussion on advocacy, indoor/outdoor games, and much more! Counselors and camp program staff are fully trained by the EFWCP to provide first aid, build confidence, and provide guidance to campers in a fun-filled atmosphere. Medical staff is always on-site for the weekend to assist with medication and medical care.
Am I Eligible?
The health and safety of our campers and their friend/sibling is our number one priority. Participants must have the self-care skills necessary to function independently within a camp environment at all times. Independent self-care skills such as feeding, bathing, and toileting are required and teens must be able to function successfully in both small and large group settings.
The EFWCP encourages participation by everyone. If your child has any physical or behavioral special needs, please contact us to discuss eligibility at 1-800-361-5885. We will work with your family and the private camping facilities to explore potential accommodations of your childs special needs.
