Camp Spifida

our story

Camp Spifida

Camp Spifida has been serving children since 1992, first as a day camp, then as a six-day overnight camping experience in the beautiful fields and woodlands of central Pennsylvania. It was created by a noted spina bifida specialist, the late Dr. Oscar Oberkircher, his family, and other volunteers.

A tortoise is the camp's mascot, because, as someone said, "Our kids remind us of the Tortoise and the Hare. It may take a while for them to get where they are going, but they always manage to get there!"

Camp Spifida is under the administration of Camps for Spiffy-Kyds, Inc., a non-profit organization that has been incorporated in Pennsylvania since 1994.

If you are aware of any child with spina bifida, who might like to share in this wonderful camping experience, please contact us.

why choose us

Part of Camp Spifida's mission is to encourage the children's independence to build self-esteem and confidence. For many of the children who come to camp, they are the only ones in their school, the only ones in their community, who have spina bifida. Camp Spifida is a place to go where they are like everyone else. Each camper brings his or her unique abilities, and that contributes to the whole camping experience.
