Camp and Shriners Hospital
The Un-Limb-ited Amputee Activity Camp is made
possible by Shriners Hospitals for Children and our
sponsors. Our organization has a history of serving
individuals ages 0-18 with disabilities, including those
with amputations regardless of patient or patient
family’s ability to pay. Un-Limb-ited focuses on young
adults by encouraging them to better understand the
use of their prosthetics through activities and sports.
Camp also provides the opportunity to discuss with
staff and peers issues common to teenage amputees.
Shriners Hospital for Children seeks to help its
patients reach their full potential beyond treating their
orthopedic conditions, by helping patients adjust to
their current disability through skills training, and
recreational and therapeutic activities.
