Camp Frog

Remember going to camp? The camaraderie among kids in your cabin. The sense of pride and self-esteem in completing challenges you never thought you’d undertake, let alone finish. Kids with epilepsy/seizure disorder make those memories every summer at Camp Frog!

Children with epilepsy — like all children — need to experience and enjoy outdoor recreation. The EAWCP sponsors two weeklong, overnight summer camping programs called Camp Frog. This nationally recognized activity allows kids with epilepsy/seizure disorders to be integrated into a typical camping experience with hundreds of other children. The overnight program is available to boys and girls with epilepsy/seizure disorders from ages 8–17 who have completed 3rd grade but not yet graduated high school. Campers enjoy a host of activities, such as arts and crafts, campfire sing-alongs, swimming, team games, sailing, archery, and horseback riding.

Camp staffs include EAWCP counselors, with additional support from medical staff. All camp staff members receive specialized training in seizure recognition and first aid. Medical staff includes a licensed pediatric neurologist and a registered nurse practitioner. Scholarships and financial assistance are available to eligible campers.

“We’re really fortunate to have the support of pediatric neurologists and nurses for each week of camp,” said the EAWCP Children and Family Services Coordinator and contact person for Camp Frog. “These medical professionals attend camp along with the EAWCP so we never have to worry about medical supervision for the children. And, the kids don’t have to worry about being sent home if they have a seizure at camp. The physician is right there to provide whatever treatment might be necessary.”

Camp Frog is a nationally recognized program for children who have epilepsy or a seizure disorder. In addition to having medical supervision around the clock for the entire week of camp at both Camp Frog locations, the EAWCP provides additional counselors for each of the camper groups that include children who experience seizures. These counselors, along with the entire camp staff, receive special seizure recognition and first aid training to ensure the safety of all campers.

Activities available at camp include archery, horse back riding, a four-story climbing tower, sand volleyball, basketball, soccer, hiking, fishing, camp fires, late night talks with friends, and much, much more. So kids, pack your camping gear and join us at Camp Frog! We promise a great week of new friendships, games and fun. Don’t take our word for it.

Welcome to Ithaca Summer College!

In Ithaca College's residential pre-college summer program, high school students experience college life and college-level courses while living in a safe environment.

The Summer College for High School Students has two program offerings, each with courses designed and reserved expressly for pre-college students.

ONE WEEK SESSION: June 23 - 28, 2019

THREE WEEK SESSION: June 30 - July 19, 2019

Students love their classes, stay up late, and enjoy trips, picnics, movies, concerts, talent shows, and other events both planned and spontaneous. Most importantly, our summer college alumni report they were better prepared for a successful transition to college. And many students appreciate the opportunity to earn college credit in their academic courses.

Credits earned during the three-week summer college program are accepted at Ithaca College and normally transferable to other colleges. Students who attend the one-week session earn a certificate of completion.

We hope you'll be able to join us for a one-week or three-week session (or both!) this summer and become part of our summer college community.

Applications now open. Apply now.
