We bring together the largest community of IBD patients in the country, and we engage them in the fight against Crohn’s & colitis. Patients are involved in setting our research priorities, contributing data and biosamples to accelerate research, helping design our educational efforts alongside our scientific advisors, and advocating for key public policy issues to legislators.

2020 Camp Oasis Registration Open

Dealing with inflammatory bowl disease (IBD) as a child is very challenging. Sign up now for a co-ed residential summer camp program that was developed exclusively for children with IBD, providing them with a safe and supportive camp community. Since all of the campers (and many of the adults) are living with IBD, campers can learn that they are not alone, try new sports and activities, create friendships with people who truly understand them, and just be kids!
