Sophie explains how attending arthritis summer camp has helped her cope with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
I have been going to arthritis camp for six years now, and I have one more year left, and then I can become a counselor. But I first started going to arthritis camp in Wisconsin, and that was really cool for me because I was 11 years old, and I did not know anyone there, but we all were united because we all had arthritis or related diseases of the joints. And we did normal things that other people do at camps such as going swimming in a lake, doing arts and crafts, all that stuff.
And then it got moved to Lake Geneva in Wisconsin, and that’s where it’s been ever since. And I continue to go mostly because I have made friends there who I still talk to a lot online, which online has been such a great tool to connect with people, and I have remained friends with a lot of people from camp.
