The Heartland Chapter’s Summer Jam Youth Retreat is the only LFA-sponsored camp in the country for young women with lupus. The retreat is free of charge for females 12 to 19 years of age with lupus or other mixed connective tissue diseases. Campers are allowed to bring one friend.

There are lots of fun camp activities planned and everything is supervised by professional staff including a Licensed Professional Counselor, and medical staff. Campers will have the opportunity to learn new coping skills and make friends with other youth who share your health challenges. Other activities include team building, boating, crafts and much more!

As soon as we hear from you, we will send you an information packet filled with all you need to make this weekend a very special retreat.
