This camp is an opportunity for teenage kidney patients to meet and interact with other kids with the same health issues, with whom they will be able to share experiences, stories and ambitions. We hope this camp will boost the participants' self-esteem and self-acceptance, but our focus will not be on the disease, rather we will provide a program filled with fun moments, challenging activities and many opportunities to learn, laugh and relax.
When: 15 22 July, 2017
Where: Quinta da Fonte Quente, Tocha (http://www.centrodeferiasqfq.org/)
