Cerebral Palsy

It's CP Family Camp time!

Our next CP Family Camp will take place March 29-30, 2014! 

Who is invited?
All families who have a child (age 1 – 17), with Cerebral Palsy. 

How will this work?
Bay Cliff summer staff volunteers will keep the kids busy (siblings too!) with fun camp activities, while parents learn more about cerebral palsy and have opportunities to connect with other parents.  There will be "Ask the Doctor" sessions for the children also, and specific activities just for siblings.   This is a great opportunity for siblings to meet other kids who have a brother or sister with cerebral palsy.  Also, children with CP have met other kids "just like me" at camp!  Everyone will enjoy mealtimes together and there will be activities for everyone to take part in together too. Each family will have there own comfortable cabin.  You'll get a glimpse of what being a camper at Bay Cliff is like!

Each year, we have a different educational theme.  In 2014, our theme will have an 'orthopedic surgery' focus and we were very fortunate to have Dr Michelle Caird with us to share her excellent experience & knowledge.  Dr Caird travels from the University of Michigan to the Upper Peninsula 3-4 times a year to see families through the Specialty Clinic at Marquette General Hospital, so they don't have to travel to see her, for consultations and post-surgical follow-up.  We are very excited that "Dr Michelle" and her family will be joining us for the weekend!  

The cost for the program is $85 per family, which includes the full program, all meals and comfortable housing.  (If cost is a barrier to attend, please let us know.)  The registration form can be downloaded here, or we would be glad to mail you one.

Interested in joining us for a future family camp? Contact us and we'll be glad to add you to the mailing list.

Please contact us anytime with any questions.

If you are interested in attending this program, but there is a conflict with the dates, please let us know that as well. We’ll make sure you are on our mailing list for future programs.  We would like to offer this program annually.
Our family camp programs come highly recommended by families who have attended in the past.  We hope you will join us at Bay Cliff for this Spring for this wonderful family experience!
