Focus + Fragile Summer Day Camps
FOCUS was founded in 1983 when two children who were medically fragile shared a hospital room. Started as a ‘living room support system,’ FOCUS grew through the years to reach over 4,000 families with 11 weeks of summer day camp; monthly respite care; support groups, hospital visits, and family camps and activities. Fragile Kids Foundation was founded by a group of professionals to help parents get the medically-prescribed equipment that insurance and Medicaid did not cover. After officially merging in 2017, FOCUS + Fragile Kids now offers parent support and information, fun programs for children and families, and equipment that makes life a little easier.
Summer is particularly difficult for children with disabilities – and for their parents. FOCUS + Fragile Kids offers a week of day camp fun, with a nurse and trained counselors onsite to assist. Community volunteers add extra energy and youth! FOCUS + Fragile Kids also hosts family activities and camps – a great way to have fun and meet families in similar circumstances.
