Expo Camp

“It was great to be around kids like me – who didn’t ask me questions about my skin.”

What is Expo Camp?

Picture a magical place where kids with eczema can just be kids. Where no one looks at you funny because you have eczema. Where having eczema means you’re just like everyone else.

Imagine an enchanted universe where the menu is free of the top 8 allergens and where you can strip down to your swimsuit at the pool without having to explain your flares.

This wondrous world exists, and it’s called Expo Camp. REGISTER NOW.

NEA’s Expo Camp actually comprises three camps: Mini Warriors (age 0-4), Junior Warriors (age 5-12) and Senior Warriors (11-17) camps support children with eczema by nurturing their self-esteem.

Expo Camp facilitators, Corporate Kids Events (CKE), are carefully planning a camp full of fun activities, creative projects, exciting outings, and age-appropriate educational sessions.

Expo Camp is a safe place for children with eczema. All CKE counselors are certified in CPR and First Aid, fingerprinted and background checked, and take part in an extensive training program.

Why should children attend Expo Camp?

Expo Camp is a safe place for children with eczema. Attendees will be empowered with knowledge, friendship, and fun.

Knowledge is power. Expo Camp will include age-appropriate, expert-led educational designed to help children care for their skin and live their best lives. View the agendas for details: Mini Warriors, Junior Warriors, Senior Warriors

Allergy-friendly eating. Snacks and lunch will be served daily to children ages 3 and up. The menu will be allergy-friendly, with no nuts, seeds, nut- or seed-oils, or seafood; most dishes will be egg and dairy free, as well. All foods will be labeled with ingredients, with a menu available for parents to view, approve, and/or revise during online registration.

Kids who “get it.” Expo Camp is a place that reminds children with eczema that they’re not alone. They’ll meet and have fun with new friends who understand eczema and who don’t ask about their skin.

A clean environment. Staph infections are a very real concern for people with severe eczema. For that reason, our camp space will be carefully cleaned and maintained to prevent the spread of staph infections.

Our enchanted, fantastical Wizard-themed Expo Camp is a nurturing, invigorating place for children to make new friends who understand what it’s like to live with eczema while enjoying arts and crafts, playing games, and learning how to live their best life with eczema. All campers will be invited to join our outing to OdySea Aquarium on Saturday.
