We are excited to be able to offer you and your child living with CKD fun and exciting yearly events that help connect everyone in the pediatric kidney community. This site will be updated with upcoming events as well as recap of the programs that have happened. Our biggest and most anticipated event is our Summer Camps. More information can be found under our Camp page. Though this event is only open to children and teens with end stage renal failure (on dialysis, with transplant/awaiting transplant) all of our other programing throughout the year is open to children and teens at any state of renal failure. We offer numerous events from teen bowling, college tours, skating parties, family at The Nutcracker, Holiday Gifts, regional events, etc. Continue to check back often and we hope to see you at our next event.

I look forward to meeting you and working with your family to help connect your children with other children like them and providing opportunities for you and other parents to share your stories!
