As part of our holistic approach to the care of children with neurological disorders, Nicklaus Children's Brain Institute hosts a number of educational and social initiatives throughout the year for parents, patients and physicians.

Camp Boggy Creek

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.

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.
