Center For Courageous Camp

The Sickle Cell Foundation of Tennessee provides a week-long medical-needs summer camp for children living with sickle cell disease at the Center for Courageous Kids.

In an effort to honor the mission statement, the following goals were established to provide specific outcomes for the camp program:

– To establish multiple supportive relationships with adults and peers.

– To enhance self esteem and confidence.

– To promote growth through self discovery and expression.

– To develop a sense of independence and group interaction

– To experience an environment of physical and emotional safety

– To provide the finest medical care that is non-intrusive to camp life, thus providing a “normal” camp experience that would otherwise be unlikely due to medical challenges.
