A summer camp like no other…Youth Rally is a 5-night camp for youth ages 11-17 living with diseases and conditions of the bowel and/or bladder systems.

The camp is all about having FUN! The week is filled with medical and educational sessions as well as recreational outings and special events for all to enjoy!


PCR 2016 Conference – we had the wonderful opportunity to hear Youth Rally President and CEO, Paul Hastings, speak about the annual camp. If you missed the presentation or would just like to watch it again: Youth Rally Presentation (pdf file)


 

Youth Rally Nursing Team

The Youth Rally Nursing team is an extension of the volunteer counselor team. They are a mixture of specialty WOCN and other registered nurses with experience in ostomy care, pediatrics, or other surgical/diversion methods.

Nurses assist campers with any problems they may be experiencing and can offer suggestions and techniques to improve the management of their medical conditions as applicable.
