Cure JM Foundation 2018 National Family Conference Recap

Kids’ Fun Camp

JM Kid Goofing Around at Kids' Camp with Frame she decoratedWhile parents, grandparents, and caregivers attended educational sessions, dozens of kids, ages 3-6, came together for two days of unforgettable fun.

The kids had a ton of fun, connecting with other JM kids and siblings. Many of the kids made new friends and met other JM kids for the first time. The children enjoyed a series of age-appropriate activities, including crafts, games, and fun activities. The Camp was supervised by Cure JM parents, Cure JM young adults, and elementary school professionals from the community.

One of the key supervisors, Leah Musico, is a local DC educator, and a mom to a four-year-old with JM.
“The Kids Camp this year was a blast! There will smiles all around as kids sang songs, created crafts (which they sold at the walk to support research), played games, listened to stories, and created hand-made frames for our beloved doctors.”

“What struck me most about the two days we spent together was the ease and comfort of the kids as they talked about what it's like to have JM. Friendships were developed and strengthened, and during the course of our time together, conversations flowed between peers who often don't get the chance to talk to others whose lives are affected by JM. It was such an honor and pleasure to get to know these amazing kids during the camp!”
