Camp STAR is a weekend camp for teens, 13 to18, that are former patients on the Cook Children's Transitional/Rehabilitative Care Unit (TCU/RCU). This camp is held at Camp John Marc in late September.
Camp STAR (stepping towards amazing recovery) was created to give teens with an acquired neurological injury, disease or disorder an opportunity to socialize among peers with similar experiences. Each camper has experienced a portion of their recovery journey while on Cook Children's RCU, and their recovery continues long after they leave RCU. Teens will have the opportunity to form new friendships, encourage and motivate each other throughout the weekend, all while:
This camp is led by professional staff from Cook Children's.
A medical team consisting of volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners, and nurses provide medical supervision 24 hours a day.
Camp STAR is for teens, ages 13 to 18, who are former patients of the RCU at Cook Children's Medical Center with an acquired neurological injury, disease or disorder. Teens must be developmentally and cognitively able to participate in the goals of Camp STAR to be eligible to attend. Save-the-dates/RSVPs are mailed to those who qualify. Campers are then accepted once the full application has been reviewed. Availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Once everyone is checked in, the adventures begin, with plenty of activities:
