A one-of-a-kind summer experience
Camp Silver Moon is the IHTC's exciting, one-of-a-kind summer experience for children ages 7-17 with sickle cell disease. This week-long event in North Webster, Indiana provides an opportunity for children to engage in a variety of fun activities against the backdrop of an outdoor adventure camp.
Children play, create, and learn alongside their peers while making memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. Along the way, interactive lessons on healthy living will encourage them to put what they have learned about their sickle cell disease into practice and share their experiences with other children who understand their unique background.
Camp Silver Moon is a don’t-miss event!
Note: Registration for 2021 Camp Silver Moon has closed.
COVID-19 Protocols for 2021 Camp Silver Moon
- Bus transportation to Camp Silver Moon will not be offered this year due to COVID-19 safety guidelines related to social distancing.
- Both Camp Crosley and IHTC will implement COVID-19 safety protocols for 2021, to protect both campers and staff. All camp participants will need to have a signed COVID-19 Protocols Acknowledgement Form on file in order to participate in 2021 Camp Silver Moon.
- Campers will be required to have a COVID-19 test prior to attending camp. Details will be included in the packet of information mailed to your home.
- Regular temperature checks and health assessments will be conducted on site.
- There will be reduced cabin numbers this year, with only 8 campers per cabin. Bunks will be arranged so that the heads of campers on top bunks will be over the feet of campers on bottom bunks. Hand sanitizer will be added to every cabin, and cabins will be sanitized 3 times daily.
- Siblings who do not have sickle cell disease are welcome to register; however, they will be put on a waitlist. If we are able to admit siblings, waitlisted siblings will be granted a spot to camp by lottery drawing.
- Activity areas will have an increased focus on sanitation of high touch areas and shared items.
- Camp staff will implement "activity pods" to minimize interaction with campers.
- Every meal will be plated/boxed by kitchen staff and handed to the camper and summer staff. There will also be staggered shifts for mealtimes.
