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.

Watch our camp videos from 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
