Lupus Summer Jam Youth Retreat

Free weekend camp at YMCA Trout Lodge in Potosi, Missouri for girls ages 12-19 with lupus!

I met lots of other girls at camp with lupus and made connections with them. I had been feeling very alone as a teen with lupus and I was glad to be able to make new connections.

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 12 to 19 years of age with lupus or other mixed connective tissue diseases. Campers may bring one friend.

There are lots of fun camp activities planned and everything is supervised by professional 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!

Online registration will open in January.

For more information about our next camp, please contact Rosemary Chustak, Patient Services Manager at 800-958-7876 or [email protected]
