DATES: October 2 to 4, 2015 LOCATION: Scottsville, Kentucky COST: FREE of charge except for travel costs to and from the camp WHO IS ELIGIBLE: Indiana children with epilepsy, ages 3 to 17, and their immediate family members. TO APPLY: You can apply online here and download necessary paperwork for your doctor to sign here. Be sure to click on the Family Retreat option and choose the Epilepsy Camp session. xxx DEADLINE: Final deadline is September 15, 2015, based on space availability. The first 15 families to submit completed and approved applications will be able to attend.

      Last year, 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. This year, we will be offering this program again over the weekend of October 2 to 4, 2015.
   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 horsebackriding, archery, woodshop, arts and crafts, indoor swimming, bowling and more.
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!

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 third year, we are able to offer Studio E sessions in Indianapolis for children with epilepsy between the ages of 7 and 17. And like last year, we have 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.
You can see photos and a video from our 2014 Studio E program on the EFI Facebook page.
