Parent Planner Resident Camp

Welcome to Arthritis Foundation Juvenile Arthritis Warriors (JAWS) Camp We are so excited you have enrolled your child at JAWS Camp! We want to assist you in preparing your child for a wonderful experience. Getting ready for camp is an important part of your child’s overall camp experience. This preparation time is an opportunity to build excitement for camp and answer questions you may have. The Arthritis Foundation takes every precaution to provide a safe and healthy experience for each camper. Our juvenile arthritis camps are medically supervised by pediatric rheumatologists, rheumatology nurses and other healthcare professionals who are available on-site, 24 hours a day. JAWS Camp will take place on July 6-8th at Bradford Woods. Campers will participate in traditional camp activities: arts and crafts, games, singing, campfires and more!

Our JA Camp Mission

Arthritis Foundation camps provide a safe and secure camp experience for children and teens with juvenile arthritis and childhood rheumatic diseases. Campers gain a greater understanding of their own juvenile arthritis diagnosis and treatment, develop peer-to-peer support, increase independence and selfconfidence, discover new skills and interests, and develop the skills they need to be leaders, advocates and champions in their everyday lives.

Head Lice and Communicable Disease Protocol: Head lice and communicable disease are a common occurrence among children and spread rapidly. For this reason, our JA camps have a proactive head lice and communicable disease management protocol in place to prevent outbreaks. All JA camp participants are screened upon arrival or at the bus stop. Any child with lice, nits or a communicable disease will not be able to attend the JA camp program.
