Camp is Calling

Summer camp is a right of passage: a time to explore, to venture away from home, to make new friends and memories — an adventure every child deserves.

As the flagship program of the Midwest YouCan Foundation, Camp YouCan helps campers step out of their comfort zone in a fun, safe environment — all in the company of other campers who understand the day-to-day challenges of living with epilepsy. Every experience is designed to help our campers build self-confidence, develop meaningful relationships and discover a world of dreams they can achieve.


Campers range in age from 7 to 17 years old, and join us from all over Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and Kansas.



Campers participate in tons of cool activities, including a zipline, ropes course, archery, arts and crafts, fishing, swimming and group sharing.



Volunteers and medical professionals are always on-hand to ensure a safe and fun experience for every Camp YouCan camper.

Camp Testimonials

I think the best thing about camp is that I get to see friends from years before and make new friends, because that’s something that’s usually very hard for me to do. I get to try new things that most people don’t get to do, stuff that I’ve never done in my life before.
— Serena, Camper
These moments are so monumental for these kids and I was so happy to be a part of it. Thank you for giving me this chance to open my eyes up to something that I have found a new passion for!
— Lisa, Camp Counselor
My daughter was a reluctant participant, but once she got to the campsite, she was excited and willing to try it all. She definitely sees herself in a new way now, and I see a much more confident young woman!
— Sheryl, Mom of Camper
