Annual Summer Jam Youth Retreat


The Heartland Chapter’s Annual 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 9 to 19 years of age with lupus or other mixed connective tissue diseases. 

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