2024 Paddy Rossbach YEP Youth Camp Announcement

Explore, Connect, and Grow
Anyone Can Advocate, and Anyone Can Speak Up

By Maurice Henson, Director of Youth & Workforce Development

The Amputee Coalition is happy to announce that the 2024 Paddy Rossbach YEP Youth Camp will be hosted at Camp Aranzazu located in Rockport, Texas. Registration opened to youth campers beginning March 15th, 2024. Camp registrations will be first come first serve until registration reaches capacity. The Coalition is pleased to engage our youth in a traditional camp setting focused on their prosocial peer-to-peer connection, along with promoting a strong connection with trusted adult mentors and camp counselors.

We know the value of our campers and counselors connecting face-to-face each summer. We have developed innovative and inclusive ways for our campers to bond together. The Coalition understands that there are unique challenges for young people experiencing limb loss/limb difference and for their caregivers. Our in-person youth camp can help these young people connect with peers, explore new experiences, and grow in their confidence and awareness.

Youth Camp creates a space for Campers, Leaders in Training, and Counselors to have fun, connect, and make lifelong friendships so no one goes through their limb loss/limb difference journey alone. We have some exciting activities lined up this year including sports, creative arts, and STEAM projects.

Most importantly, there will be time for campers to hang out with old and new friends and engage in peer support.

We can’t wait to EXPLORE a new camp this summer, CONNECT with each other, and GROW by learning and doing new activities together. The Amputee Coalition and its Youth Engagement Program (YEP) look forward to engaging with our youth at this year’s 2024 Paddy Rossbach YEP Youth Camp.
