Summer Campin' University Hospital Style

July 28, 2015

Even sick and injured kids should have some summer fun!

  • Former Spurs players
  • San Antonio Scorpions players

BACKGROUND: Summer camp is a much anticipated tradition for lots and lots of kids — unless they’re sick and in the hospital, of course. But young patients at University Hospital won’t miss out on ALL the fun. For them, our Child Life specialists have organized Camp Week, jam-packed with activities that recreate the fun of summer camp for those unable to leave the hospital because of illness or injury. University Hospital is the highest level trauma center for seriously injured kids throughout South Texas. Camp activities are taking place throughout the week, with themes and special events each day.

WHO: Pediatric patients at University Hospital, guest camp “counselors” from local theater companies, sports teams and more.

WHAT: Summer camp activities for kids too sick to leave the hospital.

Wednesday, July 29, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. — Former Spurs players Paul Griffin & Keith Edmonson
Wednesday, July 29, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. — members of the San Antonio Scorpions soccer team
