Event description

Description

NW Kidney Kids Family Camp provides a safe environment for children and families to gather for educational activities, parent and youth enrichment, emotional support, camaraderie, and networking. Participants receive support from professionals who understand these challenges, and children 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.

Who Qualifies for Family Camp? Children currently experiencing end-stage renal failure from birth to 18 years old and their immediate family (two caregivers and children living in the home). A child experiencing end-stage renal failure qualifies for camp if they meet one of the following considerations:

  • 1) a child on dialysis - HD or PD
  • 2) Have received a Kidney Transplant
  • 3) Referred for Kidney Transplant
  • 4) Referred to Camp by a Pediatric Nephrologist

Registration is OPEN with the following priorities:

  • Until May 15th - Oregon and SW Washington Families and families that have previously attended.
  • May 15th - June 1 - Northwest States (OR, WA, ID, WY, MT, and AK)
  • June 1 - July 1 - Open to everyone.

You may register at any time but will be put on a waitlist until your states open. If you miss pre-registration for your geographic area you can still register.

The camp is FREE for families because of the generous donors of NW Kidney Kids. We do ask that you only registered if you are 100% attending. If something changes, please cancel at least 30 days prior to camp to allow the space to be given to others. No shows or late cancellations will not have priority in registering in future years.

Lodging: There is an array of lodging. When registering, you can let us know what your needs are (electricity, bathroom, ADA, etc.) The Camp Manager will prioritize lodging depending on medical necessity and age of children.

If you have questions, please reach out to us at program@nwkidneykids.org or (503) 893-5671.
