About Camp Get-A-Well-A®
Camp Get A-Well-A brings a camp experience right inside the hospital, so kids confined to a medical facility can still experience the thrills of summer camp.
Volunteers work hand-in-hand with trained hospital personnel to serve as Camp Counselors for a variety of events including indoor campfire sing-a-longs, handmade crafts, tie-dye projects, camp bingo, scavenger hunts and much more!
Camp Get-A-Well-A focuses not only on meeting the physical and medical needs of the kids, but also on meeting their social and emotional needs. We serve all children in the hospital at the time of our visit, encompassing a wide range of injuries and illnesses. All family members are also welcome to attend our camps free of charge. We believe healing the spirit can help heal the body, and sometimes the best medicine doesn't come from a bottle. Our Camp History proves that.
Camp activities at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, MN on the first Saturday and fourth Thursday of every month. We created S'more Camp because you can never have too much fun! S'more Camp is a 2-4 hour camp activity that is brought into hospitals all year long. What do we do at S'more Camp? Arts and craft projects, carnivals, storytelling- basically the same things we do at camp- just more often!
