The Mississippi Sickle Cell Foundation invites your child/children to attend Camp Sickle Stars 2018 during June 13-16, 2018. We are returning to Camp Wesley Pines in Gallman, MS.

Camp Sickle Stars is the only camp in the state of Mississippi that is exclusively for children with Sickle Cell Disease. MS Sickle Cell Foundation funds Camp Sickle Stars through various fundraisers and donations. The camp is free to all children between the ages of 6-14 and transportation is available for those who need it.

We are very fortunate to have the excellent medical staff from UMC Children’s Clinic and MS Dept. of Health on site 24 hours a day. On-site physicians are Dr. Rhodes, Dr. Davis and Dr. Smith with registered nurses Teresa Walker, Glenda Thomas, Dulcey Womble, Kim Gross and Stefanie Pepper. The dedicated medical staff caters to the children’s medicine needs and any other medical issues that may arise.

We have additional adult staff and 20-25 former campers who now serve as camp counselors. Our camp counselors go through a full day of training exercises to prepare them for all camp events and activities. All counselors are fully screened by our administrative staff.

Camp Sickle Stars has one main purpose - to provide a safe, fun filled experience for all children with Sickle Cell Disease. The children participate in canoeing, swimming, indoor and outdoor games, talent show, art & crafts, education, hayride, bon fire cookout and more. There are certified life guards on duty for all water activities.
