Camp Oasis


A Place for Learning, Playing, and Healing

At Crohn's & Colitis Foundation Camp Oasis, kids living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis can just be kids. We provide a safe environment where friendships ignite, confidence soars, and epic adventures become life-long memories. Camp Oasis is FUN without the fear of judgement or feeling different.
