Week-long overnight camp exclusively for children entering grades 2 through 11 with IBD.
Youth entering 12th grade are eligible to be Leaders in Training (LIT) and volunteers who are 19 or older
and high school graduates are welcome. This year 15 Northeast Ohio children attended  Camp in Fenton Michigan!

As one former camper explains:

"Camp Oasis means friends, fun, forgetting about everything that normally sets you apart from everyone else, learning more about your disease, feeling confident and knowing that everyone here knows what you are going through."
