Camp All-Stars is an overnight camp for children, teens and young adults with kidney disease. Organized by the Harriet Lane Kidney Center in the Division of Pediatric Nephrology at Hopkins Children's, the camp's mission is to empower patients and their 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.

The division is grateful for the financial support provided by the National Kidney Foundation and others who make this wonderful experience possible for the campers.  Download the 2011 Camp All-Stars Brochure (.pdf)

Additional camp counselors, nurses and activity assistants are needed that weekend for the outdoor education program, to help kidney patients make new friends and learn to manage the lifestyle regimens essential to their health. Staff training is provided and begins Sept. 26 at Johns Hopkins. Volunteer Application.  Questions? Contact Dr. Arlene Gerson or Beth Bounds.
