Since 1996, Camp Boggy Creek has made it possible for children with serious illnesses to enjoy a camp experience in a safe, medically-sound environment completely free of charge. Located just a short drive from Orlando, Florida, the 232-acre camp serves children ages 7-16 who have been diagnosed with chronic or life-threatening conditions.

Education

The Brain Institute plays host to the annual Pediatric Neurology Course and other pediatric neurology and neurosurgery continuing medical education (CME) programs. It also offers training for physicians from throughout the world who are pursuing fellowships in neurophysiology and care of patients with epilepsy. More than two-thirds of the fellows trained during the past 15 years came from outside the United States. The Brain Institute also hosted the world's first International Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery Symposium in 1989.
