We Finally Did It!
The Coalition Against Pediatric Pain (TCAPP), RSDSA, and the US Pain Foundation have partnered with The Center for Courageous Kids in Kentucky and have pooled all of our resources to create a camp for kids in pain. This will be a family camp that will take place at The Center for Courageous Kids in Scottsville, Kentucky from July 14-17th and is free of charge. It will be a time for families and kids that deal with daily pain to kick up their heels and have fun in a safe, accepting environment!
To learn more about the camp location and what they have to offer, please visit The Center for Courageous Kids website at: http://www.thecenterforcourageouskids.org.

All applications will be processed by The Center for Courageous Kids and campers/families will be accepted based on time of application, lodging requirements, and room availability.
TCAPP, RSDSA, and The US Pain Foundation realize that finances are tight for most families dealing with pediatric pain and transportation to the camp may be difficult. We are all working together to fundraise and provide traveling stipends for those who need them. More will come regarding this in the future. In the meantime, we hope you will use the advance notice to plan accordingly, create personal fundraisers for travel to camp (once again the camp is free), and/or maybe include some travel gift cards on your upcoming holiday wish list.
We anticipate that this will be a great experience and an exciting time for everyone!! Let's have some fun!!! Hope to see you all there!!!
A huge thank you to The Center for Courageous Kids, RSDSA and the US Pain Foundation for helping make TCAPP's dream come true and be able to offer a camp for kids in chronic pain.
