I got an email from the CCFA today about Camp Oasis, a week long summer camp for kids aged 7-18 who have IBD.  There are camps scattered across the US, and they serve kids from the surrounding states.  It looks like a pretty neat program, so I thought you all might like to know about it.  You can find more info by google searching "Camp Oasis."

That sounds so amazing... I hope some of those of you with children with IBD will look into this. I would have loved to do this when I was young.
I bet the bathroom facilities are WAY BETTER than other camps too!!
