Arthritis Foundation Sponsors Camp AcheAway for Kids & Teens

Arthritis Foundation camps provide a safe and secure camp experience for children and teens with juvenile arthritis and childhood rheumatic diseases. Camp AcheAway is a five-night, residential camp hosted in partnership with Camp Aldersgate and Med Camps of Arkansas. Campers gain a greater understanding of their own juvenile arthritis, develop peer-to-peer support, increase independence and self-confidence, and discover new skills and interests.

The camp is slated for July 23-28, starting at 1 p.m. and ending at 10 a.m. The event will be held at Camp Aldersgate, 2000 Aldersgate Road in Little Rock.
