As mentioned, due to demand we are offering two weeks of camp in the summer of 2024 and look forward to welcoming back many campers! We collect data on campers and their families before and after treatment using well-researched outcome measures.

Our data shows that youth who participated in Camp Courage in 2023 report a 16% reduction in total anxiety symptoms after just one week of treatment!

Feedback from parents and children has been overwhelmingly positive!

78% of youth reported they would like to return to Camp Courage (22% “maybe” ; 0% “would not return”)
