Help us make our goal to send 19 campers to Camp Evoked Potential in 2017 by donating today!

Camp Evoked Potential is held one week out of the year for children with epilepsy in the summer at Camp ASCCA. Camp ASCCA (Alabama’s Special Camp for Children and Adults) is a national recognized leader in therapeutic recreation and is known throughout the United States for its superior quality services. The camp provides a barrier-free environment on 230 wooded acres on the shores of beautiful Lake Martin in Alabama.

The Epilepsy Foundation, through donations and grants, fully funds the campers ages 6-18 who have seizure disorders. All our campers are from Alabama. Last year we granted 18 scholarships to Alabama residents. Camp ASCCA is staffed with medical personnel to accommodate and care for children with all types of disabilities.  Seizure medications for campers with seizure disorders must be given at specific and regular times. These campers are given the opportunity to express their individuality and independence within a carefully supervised setting. The camp offers swimming, canoeing, archery, geocaching, hiking, fishing, games and the ever popular “zip-line” that will also accommodate wheelchair campers.

The campers come from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Camp Evoked Potential is sometimes the first time a child with epilepsy can experience peer acceptance and enjoy a special quality experience. The camp also offers the families an opportunity to relax in the knowledge that the camp provides a safe environment where fun can be had by all. This camp instills a freedom from a label given to them by an uninformed society. The campers learn to control epilepsy not to allow epilepsy to control them. This type of empowerment will motivate the child with epilepsy to succeed and thrive. It is our hope and our prayer that these expanded life experiences will create good and productive Alabama citizens.
