camp-discovery-logoThe annual summer camp presented by the Epilepsy Foundation Northwest, Camp Discovery, is held in August each year.  Camp Discover – Washington 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. Camp Discovery – Oregon is located at the United Methodist’s Camp Magruder with grounds located between picturesque Pacific Ocean and Smith Lake.

EFNW’s Camp Discovery – Washington 2015 was attended by 97 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 One-Arm Juggler, Museum of Flight Program, 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.

2016 will be the first year for Camp Discovery – Oregon! All the same camp activities and fun described above will also be at Camp Discovery – Oregon this next August!

Campers – 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. (A Camper Registration Application is located below.) All campers, regardless of whether one has epilepsy or not, have to complete and submit the Camper Application Form. Parents will be required to provide one-on-one attendant care for children with special needs unless the parent accompanies the child during Camp.

Volunteers – 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. (A Volunteer Registration Application is located below.) All 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.

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