Camp YesICan is a camp specifically designed for children with prosthetic limbs and is held every August at Big Bay Cliff Health Camp in Big Bay, Michigan. The camp was created to help amputees ages 4 to 17 discover and believe that “YES I CAN do anything!” Bay Cliff Health Camp, the Filippis Foundation, the Wright & Filippis prosthetic department, and AmpuTeam haved teamed up to provide a week-long opportunity where children can learn to use their prosthesis more fully and to try a variety of fun, outdoor activities, such as riding horses and playing sports. This camp also provides an opportunity for the children to meet new friends who face similar challenges.
Every child who attends will learn that with their prosthesis, there truly are no limits. Camp YesICan aims to build courageous, confident and self-sufficient children who are able to lead productive lives and believe that “Yes I Can” do anything!
Camp YesICan takes place at Bay Cliff Health Camp, which is located on 170 acres of land along Lake Superior near Big Bay, in Marquette County, Michigan. Bay Cliff Health Camp was established in 1934 to promote the health, welfare, happiness, and development of children. Through an intensive program of daily therapy and traditional camp activities, children learn to become more independent and are inspired to believe in themselves and their potential.
Camp YesICan would not be possible without all of the tremendous support we receive from people like you! If you would like to sponsor a camper or support any of the camps’ activities, please contact your local Wright & Filippis prosthetist to find out more information.
