Camp is open to all children that are residents of California. Campers must be between the ages of 9-15 and diagnosed by a physician as having a primary diagnosis of Epilepsy. Campers must be on some form of anti-convulsant therapy during camp. Children will be considered for admission after completion of the camp application and review by our medical staff. Staff from the Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California, Greater Los Angeles, and San Diego County will attend for the duration of camp. Additionally, a psychologist and a number of epileptologists and nurses will be on-site 24 hours a day. Camp Coelho counselors are selected for their experience and enthusiasm for working with young children. All counselors receive special training in seizure recognition and first aid. There is 1 counselor for every 2 campers.
