With summer fast approaching the National Kidney Foundation is helping ease the perennial question, “What will we do this summer?”
The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Kidney Camp Directory provides individuals with kidney disease and their families all the information necessary to select an appropriate camp. The directory features both summer and year-round camps located in all parts of the United States. The facilities offer a wide variety of activities, including swimming, baseball, basketball, volleyball, horseback riding, fishing, boating, archery, photography and arts and crafts.
The camps listed in the directory are ideal for people who are on dialysis or have had a kidney transplant. Many provide on-site dialysis and are staffed with trained counselors and renal health specialists. Many are also wheelchair accessible.
To make camp selection easy, the directory provides tips on choosing a camp, session dates, as well as information on age and/or physical limitations, financial assistance availability and treatment modality options. For a free copy of the National Kidney Foundation Kidney Camp Directory call (800) 622-9010.
The National Kidney Foundation is dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by these diseases and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation. To submit information on camps for the 2001 season, contact Kester Williams at (800) 622-9010.
