The annual four-day camp, held at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, was established for patients who have a serious illness, such as sickle cell disease and short bowel syndrome, and are too young to attend traditional overnight camps. The program provides kids a fun and exciting summer camp experience while considering their unique health care needs.

In its inaugural year, 11 patients and 2 siblings enjoyed various age-appropriate activities, including magic shows, yoga, arts and crafts, and dancing to live music. The camp was made possible through a generous donation to the Hasbro Children’s Hospital Child Life department.

Camp Grace is run by the Child Life staff and experienced volunteer counselors with supervision by medical staff.
