Last spring, Stella, together with her little sister, Ellis, and her parents, Kat and Eddie, attended North Star Reach’s Family Camp. It was there that her mother discovered “powerful and lasting friendships with other families. Each of us experienced the warm embrace of community and companionship.”
Months later, in July, Stella was ready to go away to camp by herself, to meet other kids like her at North Star Reach’s inaugural Epilepsy Camp. “Though she was going away for the first time,” says her mom. “I wasn’t worried. North Star Reach had become our home. Stella came back full of independence and confidence.”
Stella was one of 457 campers attending sleepover camp at North Star Reach last summer. These experiences for children who otherwise could not attend camp simply aren’t possible without your support, as we depend on generous contributions to serve every child free of charge.
