In October, 15 children with epilepsy from all over Indiana got the chance to “just be kids” during a special weekend retreat at the Center for Courageous Kids in Scottsville, Ky. In 2015, we hope to offer this program again.
  The center is a world class medical camp that features all of the traditional camping activities in an environment that is safe and fun for children living with medical challenges such as seizure disorders. Private family lodging 
and meals are provided.
This program is made possible by grants received from Arni’s Restaurant and various other sponsors. Among the activities enjoyed by the campers are horseback riding, archery, woodshop, arts and crafts, indoor swimming, bowling and more.
There is NO COST to attend; the family's only responsibility is travel costs to and from the camp.



The camp staff also gives the parents an opportunity for a “night out” which is a rare occurrence for many because of their child’s medical needs.  The chance for families affected by epilepsy to share common experiences and support one another is also a valuable benefit of the camp.
        We are excited to have begun this partnership with the Center for Courageous Kids that proved to be a life-changing experience for many of our Indiana families, and hope to continue sponsoring many more campers in the years ahead!
        For more photos, see our Family Camping Weekend album on Facebook.
To find out how you can get involved in the 2015 camp as a supporter or as a participant, contact Sandy Pollard at skppy72@gmail.com





This program features group art therapy for children with seizure disorders.  Through Studio E, participants can explore their creativity, meet others with epilepsy and express themselves in an open, accepting and safe group setting using a variety of artistic media.  A licensed art therapist conducts the sessions.
For the second year, we were able to offer Studio E sessions in Indianapolis for children with epilepsy between the ages of 7 and 17. And new this year, we had a concurrent art program taking place during the sessions for parents and caregivers at no charge! 
Thanks to the art therapists at Art of the Soul for hosting this year's program and to sponsorship support from Lundbeck, a pharmaceutical company committed to helping people with epilepsy. If you are interested in enrolling in our 2015 Studio E program, contact Sandy Pollard at skppy72@gmail.com
