Camp Coast

Camp Coast is an overnight camp for young adults aged 18+ with epilepsy and developmental delays. This unique program in NYS provides a summer camp experience, pre-vocational education, and a service project.

As the COVID-19 public health crisis continues to play out, you’ve probably wondered how its spread will impact our Summer camps. Believe us when we say we have too! At this time, we are planning to hold both Camp COAST and Camp EAGR as originally scheduled; however, EPI is monitoring the COVID-19 situation very carefully and this may change.

In the event that the camp you registered for is cancelled or postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, you will have three options with your registration fee: you may transfer your registration fee to a future camp registration; you may request a refund; or you may donate the fee to EPI and we will restrict its use for future camps.

These are challenging times for all, so in the event a change needs to be made to when/if the camps will take place, we will contact you and you may choose the option that is best for your family.

We hope to see you at camp for the very best summer ever!

Camp EAGR

Camp EAGR is an overnight summer camp for kids with epilepsy and their siblings! They will enjoy a week of swimming, horseback riding, rock wall climbing, laughing and having fun with other kids and counselors who understand what having epilepsy is like. Camp EAGR is staffed with knowledgable volunteer counselors, nurses, and neurologists to ensure our campers are safe while having fun!
