Craniofacial Camp

Every summer the Craniofacial Center holds a four-day camp for children with craniofacial differences and their families who are followed in local clinics. Spots fill up quickly, and this year is no exception, as all the spaces have been filled. The camp is designed to help children develop coping skills and improve self-esteem and self-confidence. The camp, which is staffed by our team members and UF graduate students, provides an opportunity for 15-25 families to spend time with specialists and other families with similar problems in an informal setting where they can ask questions, express concerns, and develop friendships. Camp Montgomery, the site of the annual camp, is located on beautiful Lake Crystal, about 40 miles east of Gainesville and the UF campus. This camp features individual cabins for families and staff, a large dining/conference hall, a covered basketball court, and extensive lake frontage for boating, fishing, and swimming.
