The Purple Camp

Memories In The Making

Operated by Epilepsy Foundation New England, The Purple Camp offers children and their families a friendly and safe environment to experience being at camp and the opportunity to make new friends.

Traditionally, the Purple Camp offers our campers a wide range of exciting and engaging activities including archery, swimming, sports, theater, arts & crafts, music, climbing tower, kayaks and paddle boards, campfire circle, talent show, boating, and games for kids and families throughout New England. In 2020, our camps will be virtual.
