Campers don’t just go to camp and return home the same as before. The experiences and friends campers make at Camp Brainstorm stay with them long after they’ve left. Read some of the firsthand accounts from counselors, campers, and parents.
Noah Williamson has participated in every Camp Brainstorm. First he was a camper, and in 2018, he became a camp counselor.
Camp Brainstorm has allowed me to meet other people with epilepsy and see that I am not the only person struggling with it. Camp Brainstorm has allowed me to see how I can inspire others with epilepsy. It allowed me to make life-long friends. I still talk to people I met at camp from eight years ago. Because of camp, I can perform seizure first aid to help anyone who has a seizure.
Jonathan Kubala, is a parent of a child with epilepsy who attended Camp Brainstorm.
Parents of children with epilepsy often face the challenge of whether to let their child do many things typical children do, like go away to camp. Camp Brainstorm provides these kids an awesome experience in a medically safe and accommodating environment. It had provided my child with an experience that I would hesitate to otherwise allow because of his epilepsy.
Josh Diaz, a first time counselor, wrote a blog on the Epilepsy Foundation Central & South Texas website about his experience at Camp Brainstorm. To read Josh’s full blog post, visit our Newsroom.
Camp Brainstorm makes every camper feel like anything is possible. One of my campers decided to become a counselor and this to me was touching. Getting these kids to think about and plan their futures is a major achievement.
