Volunteer and child enjoy a day at the beach during VACC Camp

Dr. Moises Simpser VACC Camp

Held each year in Miami during spring break, the Ventilation Assisted Children's Center Camp provides children with tracheostomies (requiring oxygen and ventilators to breathe), along with their families, a week filled with activities such as swimming, boating and bowling regardless of their medical limitations.

The camp activities are all conducted in a medically-safe environment thanks to the help of volunteers and medical personnel from Nicklaus Children’s Hospital who donate their time and services to ensure a safe week for all involved.

The camp is sponsored by Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and is supported by many who donate their time and services to the children of VACC camp. For more information about The Dr. Moises Simpser VACC camp, visit www.vacccamp.com
