Limb loss is not easy, and for children living with limb loss, the feelings of self-consciousness about the way they look and their sense of flaws is more acute. Camp is a shared experience for many children, and camps especially for children with limb loss are a place where children can enjoy their time and find new friends who are going through the same experiences.
Places like No Limits are a great resource. Visit their website for more info.
NeedyMeds has a great list of retreats, camps, and recreational programs.
Books About Limb Differences
One Little Fin has a fantastic collection of books, and a great story about Gavin, the little boy who inspired this helpful blog
“Children With Limb Loss – A Handbook For Families”
