The Heartland Chapter's Summer Jam Girls Retreat is a weekend camp for girls aged 12-19 who have lupus. Campers will be supervised by compassionate camp counselors who are also living with lupus.  This is a great opportunity to meet others your age who understand your health struggles while also learning about your disease and having fun!
