Finding a Summer Camp for Your Child
This time of year, many parents are looking for summer activities for their schoolage children. What about those children with special needs who for one reason or another can't go to regular summer camps? Or what about the ever present question of, "How do I find more people like me?" at the childs level? Here is a great resource that collects information on summer camps for special needs children, and they even have a section specifically for children with craniofacial concerns.

In Europe, EuroRDis is collecting information on this. You can contact them or find information about their activities here.
