A Fun Place for Learning, Playing, and Healing

Dealing with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) as a child is even more challenging. That is why the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) proudly established Camp Oasis over a decade ago. This co-ed residential camp program enriches the lives of children with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis by providing them with a safe and supportive camp community. Watch our video and see what your children can experience.

A Life Changing Experience

Since all of the campers (and many of the adults) at Camp Oasis are living with IBD, our supportive community allows them to:

  • See that they are not alone
  • Try all sorts of new sports and activities
  • Create friendships with people who truly understand them
  • Gain confidence and independence
  • Put aside their troubles, and just be a kid

 

Our volunteer physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals are available for 24-hour care, and work to ensure campers follow the regimen prescribed by their doctors back home.
 

If you would like to donate in-kind gifts such as crayons, snacks, band aids, bug spray or other items to Camp Oasis,

please contact Katie Pouga at kpouga@ccfa.org or (646) 388-9290.
