COVID-19 update as of April 24, 2020:
The health, safety, and well-being of our families is paramount in our decision-making process and we know CCK holds these same values. CCK has decided to cancel all of their summer camps for 2020. SRNA fully supports this decision. We understand and value the time you’ve spent on the process of applications, physician statements, and the hopes you have of reuniting with camp friends and meeting new families. Please continue to reserve these dates of July 24-28, 2020, for an online camp experience! We will be working diligently with CCK, and our medical and community volunteers, to create a unique, memorable, educational, and worthwhile experience for you and your children. For questions, additional information, or to be sure you’re on our email list regarding our Family Camp opportunity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

SRNA is excited to announce that our partnership with the Center for Courageous Kids (CCK) in Scottsville, KY continues with our 2020 SRNA Family Camp. Be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, July 24 through Tuesday, July 28, 2020, for the next annual SRNA Family Camp!
HOW TO APPLY?

ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE INFORMATION
Families will receive detailed information about arrival and departure times along with their acceptance confirmation directly from CCK. In general, most families arrive at camp around 3:00 pm on the first day of camp. Camp closes at noon on the last day of camp. The closest airport is Nashville, Tennessee. It is your responsibility to arrange for transportation to and from camp. Please do not make airline reservations until you receive an acceptance email or letter from CCK. CCK and SRNA are unable to offer transportation to and from camp.
WHAT IS THE COST?
There is no cost for families to come to camp beside personal travel expenses. SRNA and CCK have a partnership under which we cover the cost of camp. SRNA may be able to offer limited financial assistance based on need and eligibility, via travel grants to families. All accepted families will receive an email with an application form and guidelines to apply for this funding in early summer 2020, and when all of the camp spots are confirmed. Grant funds are disbursed as reimbursements and only once each of the grant requirements is met. All travel grant details will be included in the email to confirmed camp attendees in July 2020.
Medical professionals and specialists from our community will be attending camp and provide a three-day education program for the parents and any of the children, teens, or young adults who attend camp and are interested in the education program. All medical volunteers attending SRNA Family Camp have been invited by SRNA to join as camp volunteers and to participate in an educational program during the camp. The medical volunteers may share their experience and make recommendations, but will not be able to provide specific medical advice.
Please feel free to contact us at any time for additional information or to learn more about our Family Camp!
