Application & Eligibility
Camp Brainstorm is open to youth ages 8-17 residing in Central & South Texas with a primary, single diagnosis of epilepsy and well controlled seizures. Children MUST be on anti-seizure medications and/or must be regulated on a physician approved alternative therapy such as Ketogenic Diet or VNS. Children attending camp must be able to care for their own basic needs, follow directions, participate in the regular camping activities and be emotionally and behaviorally ready for a live-away camp experience. Medical supervision and volunteer support are provided, but one-on-one supervision is not available. Space is limited and eligible campers are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Additional eligibility requirements include completion of all forms and releases in the application packet. All applications are reviewed and campers are selected by the Camper Selection Committee. Should any information provided in the application be found to be falsified previous to and/or during the week of camp, the Epilepsy Foundation Central & South Texas reserves the right to deny acceptance and/or send the camper home. (ie. unreported: excessive physical limitations, required care that does not reflect our staff ratio, behavioral issues etc.)
