Empowering Kidney Kids for Lifelong Sucess

Youth & Family Kidney Camps


Our flagship program, Youth, Teen and Family Kidney Camps, is a no-cost camp for children with chronic kidney disease (either on dialysis or with a transplant) and their family members. Held at the Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center in Turner, Oregon during August, the Kidney Camp experience provides a safe environment for children, teens and families to gather for educational activities, parent enrichment, emotional support, camaraderie and networking. Camp participants are provided with valuable information that assists them in managing the challenges associated with kidney disease. They receive support from professionals who understand these challenges, and children, teens and parents offer meaningful support to one another and develop friendships that extend beyond Camp. Kidney Camp encourages campers to see life beyond their disease while addressing the emotional issues associated with kidney disease and empowering Kidney Kids to achieve lifelong success. We continue to serve more teens, children and families each year through our camp. We are excited that through the continued generosity of our donors and creativity of our staff we are able to open up our youth programming to 6th-8th graders in addition to our camp for 9th-12th graders!
