Camp Roehr Logo

With a heavy heart, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Southern Illinois (EFGSI) has decided to cancel Camp Roehr 2020. This difficult decision was reached by the EFGSI Board of Directors and the Executive Director after considerable deliberation and reflection on the safety and well-being of our campers, counselors and medical team during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Southern Illinois has provided Camp Roehr for over 25 years. We know how much our campers, their families, our volunteers and staff look forward to the life-changing excitement of camp.

Unquestionably this is a challenging time for us all, but we are dedicated and determined to come back stronger than ever for Camp Roehr 2021!
