Neurofibromatosis Northeast is proud to sponsor children to Camp New Friends each summer. Children with neurofibromatosis are quite often isolated and anxious about their disability or disfigurement.
Camp for children and teens with neurofibromatosis is a safe haven where their disfigurement or physical challenges are understood and accepted. It provides an opportunity to build self-esteem and establish social connections with others who live with the condition.
Camp New Friends is a collaboration between The Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC and NF organizations from around the country.
NF Camp took place August 4th through the 10th in 2019. If you would like to send your child to Camp New Friends in 2020, you will see registration information here.
