About FACES CAMP
FACES Camp is a traditional week-long overnight summer camp for boys and girls with craniofacial differences ages 6 -17, featuring Bring a Buddy to Camp, where siblings or BFFs can experience camp together. The program features summer camp activities emphasizing nature, outdoor adventure, noncompetitive sports, art, drama, and more.
Located in Cloudland, Georgia, FACES Camp is like any other fun summer camp where kids can just be kids.
Why is this important? Kids with facial differences don’t often have the chance to be with a group of their peers who look like them and who can relate to similar medical issues. FACES Camp provides a haven for kids to make a best friend, to summon the courage to ride a horse, climb the rock wall, or attempt public speaking by telling a story around the campfire.
These life-changing experiences build our kids’ courage, confidence, success, and leaders. One parent reported her teenage daughter was her "happiest and most confident self " after her week at FACES Camp last summer. The experience was "transformational for her after meeting other kids face to face with shared experience of craniofacial differences” and is wanting to be a camp counselor in the future. Parents reported increased self-confidence and independence at home and school in their children after FACES Camp.
In 2022 we want to send 30 kids to FACES Camp. Please consider being an Individual Sponsor and make a transformative gift for a child living with a facial difference. They are waiting to have the best week of their life!

Sponsor a Child for FACES Camp!
It costs $910 for one child to spend a 6-day session at FACES Camp. These fees include full tuition for week-long overnight housing, food, medical care, daily activities, and events. Additionally, there is a need to help families with travel costs of getting their children to and from FACES Camp. By sponsoring one of our campers, you can help alleviate the costs to their families and give these kids a summer they will never forget!
Your gift makes a personal difference to a child touched by craniofacial differences. You will receive a thank you note from your sponsored camper(s) with a Commemorative Camp Photograph.
