Partnership Camps

YMCA Camp Shady Brook is proud and honored to partner with the following organizations. Please follow the web site links to find out more information on each camp and to see if your child would qualify for the program.

Giving kids confidence and connections

Arthritis_Foundation_CampersJA Camp Colorado is a fun, co-ed overnight camp for kids between the ages of 8 and 16 (at time of camp) who have been diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis and other pediatric rheumatic conditions. Juvenile arthritis (JA), also known as pediatric rheumatic disease, is not a specific disease. It’s an umbrella term to describe the inflammatory and rheumatic diseases that develop in children under the age of 16. These conditions affect nearly 300,000 kids and teens in the United States. JA Camp Colorado provides kids and teens with more information about their disease as well as letting them know that they are not alone. For many of our campers, traditional camp would not be an option. Our camp gives them the confidence and connections they need to help them navigate their own disease.
