adults with kidney disease. Organized by the Harriet Lane Kidney Center

families through education about kidney disease and with social
interaction in a fun environment. This year's overnight camp takes place
at the Sandy Hill Camp and Retreat Center in North East, Md., Oct. 15-16.
camp counselors, nurses and activity assistants are needed that weekend

friends and learn to manage the lifestyle regimens essential to their
health. Staff training is provided and begins Sept. 26 at Johns Hopkins.
