Teen Camp - 2018 TBD

If you have questions email


Since 1994, a weeklong camp has been held at Children's Harbor at Lake Martin, Ala., each year for children ages 13 to 18 who have received heart, kidney, liver or lung transplants.

The campers meet in the morning at Children's Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama and ride a bus to Children's Harbor on Lake Martin. Parents wave goodbye to their campers on the road to independence -- a cornerstone of the BRIDGES mission.

Daily activities include fitness activities, crafts, and water sports. Counselors and staff lead group discussions and provide lessons on self-perception, self-confidence and self efficacy. Other important topics of discussion at the group meetings include medication, career counseling, and nutrition.
