For 14-year-old Sydney Radcliff, camp is an escape.
“It’s comforting. You don’t have to worry about other people being scared and judging you. You don’t have to worry about people judging you for having epilepsy and stuff,” said Sydney.
This summer will mark Sydney’s sixth time at Camp EAGR, part of EPI or Empowering People’s Independence. Mike Radell is camp director.
“These kids get to come to camp and experience what every other kid in the world experiences, but in a safe atmosphere. They have neurologists and nurse practitioners and counselors there that get it,” said Radell.
