Epilepsy Foundation Camp Roehr 2017

Camp Roehr took place from June 11th through June 16th and was held at YMCA Trout Lodge in Potosi Missouri. Camp Roehr is a six day long residential camp for children and teens with epilepsy. This year there were 55 individuals in attendance.  Rocky (a Moluccan Cockatoo) also attended camp this year! Camp Roehr provided campers with swimming, arts and crafts, tee shirts, Archery, Rifle Marksmanship, camp fires with songs and s’mores, a D.J. Dance party, a nature hike, a genuine barn dance, horseback riding and many other activities. This year we also had a fantastic zip-lining experience.
