Camp Discovery and Solstice Camp each provide a safe and encouraging camp environment where youth with epilepsy are given the opportunity to explore new experiences. Campers participate in exciting recreational activities including swimming, boating, archery, cooking, sports, arts, and more. They also engage in a small group informational session on epilepsy with a pediatric neurologist. Both camps are provided in partnership with North Star Reach, a 105-acre camp in Pinckney for children with serious, chronic health conditions. Camp Discovery is a 5-day/4-night camp for children with epilepsy, ages 7 - 15. Solstice camp is a 4-day/3-night camp for teens (ages 16 - 17) with chronic health conditions including epilepsy.

All 2020 summer camps at North Star Reach, including Camp Discovery and Solstice Camp, have been cancelled to protect the health and safety of campers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual programming for campers will be provided from June through August. Additional details on programming, schedules, and registration will be available at
