Camp Discovery – Coming again! August 18-21, 2014
Location: Camp Killoqua
Stanwood, WA (Snohomish County)

Camp DiscoveryThe annual summer camp presented by the Epilepsy Foundation Northwest, Camp Discovery, is held in August each year.  The Camp is located at the Camp Fire USA’s Camp Killoqua on beautiful Crabapple Lake just east of Lake Goodwin in Snohomish County (Stanwood and Everett), WA.  Children will experience archery, rock climbing, canoeing, hiking, swimming, arts/crafts, campfire games and much more.

EFNW’s Camp Discovery 2013 was attended by 72 Campers and 40 Volunteers and 15 fantastic Camp Killoqua staff members. Campers and Volunteers spent three nights and four days enjoying the beautiful camp grounds at Camp Killoqua while participating in all the camp activities. Camp activities included the Studio E/Lundbeck Art Therapy Program, the Bubbleman, Native American storyteller, and all of the regular camp activities such as swimming, rock wall climbing, t-shirt tye-dye, gaga ball, the camp barbecue, flag raising ceremony, camp songs and so much more.

The Camp is for children with epilepsy age 7-16 for which there is no charge.  Siblings are also invited to attend Camp Discovery.  One sibling is allowed at no cost and additional siblings are at a cost of $125 per child.  Parents are encouraged to be Camp Cabin Volunteers and participate in this life experience with their children.  Other volunteers are also welcomed to help as Camp Cabin Volunteers and in other capacities.

Camp DiscoveryParents will be required to provide one-on-one attendant care for children with special needs unless the parent accompanies the child during Camp.

Volunteers are required to submit a Volunteer Registration Form and background check will be conducted by EFNW in order to be approved as a Camp volunteer. EFNW has the right to refuse volunteer applications based on background check and ability of volunteers to be responsible for children and their safety.

Two nurses are on site at all times during Camp Discovery.  Camp Discovery serves children from Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Idaho and Montana.

Here are some of the great comments we received this year:

“My husband just picked up my kids and they had SUCH a wonderful time. I can’t thank you guys enough for making this possible.  We will be sure to get more involved as a family in the years to come.  What a wonderful experience.”

“Hi first I would like to thank you again for the opportunity to volunteer and be apart of the camp this year. I had an amazing time and really look forward to it next year! Thanks!”

“Thank you is so far less than you deserve for what you do not only for the kids, but for us parents, too! But, thank you is what I have and I hope you know how much gratitude we hold in our hearts for all of you!”
