Virtual Camp Oasis

Virtual Camp Oasis logo

Over 15 years ago, we started Camp Oasis, our residential summer camp program, to give children with Crohn's and ulcerative colitis a safe place to play, learn, and heal. To make sure everyone feels included, we've added a virtual component so that kids who are unable to join us on-site can still enjoy the magic of camp from the comfort of their homes. For pictures and videos of our camp sessions, to participate in activities, and to connect with our Camp Oasis community - like us on Facebook (CampOasisIBD) and follow us on Instagram (@Camp_Oasis_IBD)!
