Going away to summer camp may seem out of reach for children on dialysis or who have had a kidney transplant. Not at Camp ChiMer! Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City, with the support of Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, is excited to present Camp ChiMer - summer camp specifically geared for children ages nine to 17 who are undergoing peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis or who have had a renal transplant. The camp is held on the scenic grounds of Lake Doniphan, a 100-acre privately owned facility east of Excelsior Springs, Mo. Children participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities while being carefully monitored daily by health care professionals. Here, kids with special kidney conditions can experience camp just like everybody else.
