Every year kids with IBD ages 7 to 18 have the opportunity to attend Colorado’s Camp Oasis program. This year, camp will be July 10th to July 15th in Deckers, Colorado at YMCA’s Camp Shady Brook. Camp Oasis provides a sanctuary where children with IBD are not defined by their illnesses. Pediatric gastroenterologists, nurses, and licensed social workers make up our volunteer camp staff to ensure that your child has a safe and fun time at camp. Apply by June 10th at

We will #walkforcures this year to EMPOWER and INSPIRE patients and their families to live their fullest lives and continue our fight for cures. By joining the Take Steps community, you will fundraise to support mission-critical research and patient support programs for the 1.6 million Americans living with IBD. Walk as an individual or gather your friends, family, and co-workers to form a team.
