Camp Roehr 2014 Review

Camp Roehr 2014 Group Picture

Camp Roehr took place from June 8th through June 14th and was held at Pere Marquette State Park in Grafton, Illinois. Camp Roehr is a week long residential camp for children and teens with epilepsy. This year there were 63 individuals in attendance. Lady (nurse Pats dog) also attended camp this year! Camp Roehr provided campers with a beautiful swimming pool, woodworking and other arts and crafts, visits from the Critter Professor, the Riverbend Astronomical Society, Red Cross, QEM Fire department, tee shirts, Archery, a Rock Wall, a drive in movie, camp fires with smores, Amazing Kids Entertainment (Balloon making and magic), a Carnival day complete with face painting and cotton candy, Circus Kaput, and many other activities. This year we also had a visit from Kona Ice, Sticks and Cone Ice Cream truck, and the Midwest Sound and Light Shows DJ as part of the festivities.

A Special Thanks to all who contributed to Camp Roehr 2014!
