Koda's Kamp

Koda's Kamp is designed to allow siblings of medically dependent children a chance to have fun, relax and just be a kid without the pressures of their daily life. Everything related to Koda's Kamp is completely free to the Kamper, including accomodations, food and activities.

Koda's Kamp was the idea of Koda Bigham in March of 2012 at age 6. Koda is the older brother of Brynne, who has several serious medical needs. Siblings of medically dependent children (mdc) experience life lessons that most adults have trouble grasping. Koda, like many siblings of MDC's, has learned to aid in taking care of his sister, can understand medical terminology, has gained the ability to adapt to stressful situations and most of all, to understand when he might not get to have all of the mommy/daddy time he wants and deserves.
Koda was watching TV with our family as a news cast explained a sick child was receiving a gift, he asked us “What about all the brothers and sisters of all the sick kids?” Not understanding what he was trying to ask, we asked him what he meant. “I bet they'd like to get to do something fun, don't you?” he said. "Yes" was our answer. We are so thankful our board of directors said "Yes" too!
Registration will open April 1, 2014 and will be available for the first 50 registrants. If you know of a sibling(s) of a medically dependent child please share this with their parents. If you would like to sponsor a Kamper, camp needs or be a volunteer, we will have information available very soon.

We are so very excited to see what God will do through Koda's Kamp!!
