Camp Rock 'N Rally and Camp Never Give Up! are our signature programs for kids and teens who live with epilepsy.
Throughout the camp experience, participants experience "normal" summer camp activities in a safe, supportive environment. They learn team-building skills through activities such as sports, skits, and Olympic games. Group sessions allow participants to discuss their feelings and learn how others cope with their epilepsy.
At camp, participants do not have to worry about explaining their seizures to their peers; they simply have fun. The friendships made at camp often continue throughout the year and for many to come.
Each program includes trained medical staff and counselors who are trained in seizure recognition, first aid, and the special needs of children with epilepsy. Many counselors and volunteers live with epilepsy and share their experiences with the campers.
We are the leader in connecting, educating, and empowering to improve the lives of everyone affected by epilepsy.
We connect people to healthcare providers, support networks, and a listening ear, and we educate schools, employers, and the community at large to reduce stigma and raise awareness. We empower people affected by epilepsy with knowledge, resources, and advocacy to live their best lives.
For more than 50 years, we have remained committed to our mission, and we will not rest until we achieve a world free from seizures. The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado & Wyoming leads the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures and save lives.

Epilepsy is a common and unpredictable condition that often leads to feelings of social stigma and isolation. Our camps are developed to reduce the stigma and isolation while allowing people affected by epilepsy to meet others with seizures so they realize they are not alone.
Since 2015, our camps have offered kids and teens the opportunity to receive support and encouragement while building self-confidence, independence, knowledge and skills to more successfully live with epilepsy. Participants develop friendships, gain a better understanding of their condition, and realize their potential and self-worth.
