CAMP ROEHR, 2016

Camp Roehr took place from June 26th through July 2nd and was held at YOGI BEAR’S JELLYSTONE RESORT PARK in Eureka, Missouri. Camp Roehr is a seven day long residential camp for children and teens with epilepsy. This year there were 55 individuals in attendance. Camp Roehr provided campers with swimming, arts and crafts, tee shirts, games, camp fires with songs and s’mores, a D.J. Dance party, a nature experience, and many other activities. This year we also had a fantastic day at Six Flags!

The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Southern Illinois hosts an annual week long residential camp each year in June. Camp ROEHR gives young people between the ages of six and eighteen with epilepsy a variety of opportunities to focus on their strengths. With a staff of caring, qualified counselors and medical support personnel, the children are able to make new friends and have a great time in a safe, supportive environment.  

Camp Roehr also provides a great opportunity for “high energy” volunteers to act as camp counselors, cooks, photographers, certified life guards, nurses, and activity enthusiasts.

Join us for an exciting, fun-filled camping experience without another moment lost to seizures.
