Our mission is to provide camps and programs at no cost to pre and post transplant children, teens, young adults and their families from Alabama and neighboring states.
We create a fun and educational environment for heart, kidney, liver and lung transplant recipients that encourages positive self image and healthy transplant living. Those served receive and provide peer support and form lasting friendships to better cope with the unique challenges of transplantation.
Children with end-stage organ disease and transplantation are on a journey that will continue all their lives – from waiting for an organ to staying healthy after receiving one. At Camp BRIDGES, we believe children and their families shouldn’t have to do it alone. We’re here to help. Through our week-long camp and weekend programs, we offer an integrated approach to enhancing the emotional, physical, physiological and financial well being of children and their families.
Camp BRIDGES Teen Camp & Family Camp takes place at Children's Harbor on Lake Martin - Children's Harbor donates their facilites for both of our camps each summer. To learn more about Children's Harbor visit www.childrensharbor.com
