2023 NF Camp Scholarships Available!
Saturday, July 15th – Friday, July 21st
The Tumour Foundation of BC is pleased to offer scholarships for youth and young adults ages 13-18 to attend the Children’s Tumour Foundation‘s NF Camp.
NF Camp is not just about the fun-filled activities, it is a chance to make lasting friendships with other people who understand what it's like to be a young person with NF.
The dedicated camp for individuals with NF will take place at Camp Kostopulos in Salt Lake City, Utah. Bringing together over 100 youths living with NF over the course of two weeks for community friendship and fun, Camp provides NF patients with the psychosocial tools to build their confidence and independence through peer support and recreational therapy.
NF Camp at Camp K has a 5:1 camper to counsellor ratio with a 24 hour Registered Nurse on-site at all times. NF Camp has onsite activities such as a ropes course, swimming, horseback riding, and an NF education talk from local NF specialists from the University of Utah Medical Center. There are numerous offsite activities for the campers to enjoy including field trips to the local amusement park, Salt Lake City Bees game, the local waterpark, and a day of canoeing.
