The Center for Courageous Kids

About This Activity

Nestled in the beautiful Kentucky Bluegrass is a peaceful little town called Scottsville, Kentucky. The birthplace of your favorite hometown store, The Dollar General Store, is also the location of a state of the art, world-class "medical camping facility" called The Center for Courageous Kids. We welcome medically fragile children and their families from across the country (kids from 29 states and Canada have come thus far!). We invite you to explore our website, learn more about CCK, and feel free to contact us with additional questions, comments or support! "When you make a difference in a child's life, you make a difference in your own." The Center for Courageous Kids is designed specifically for the child living with medical challenges who could not attend a traditional camp. A 501(c)(3) not for profit organization, we are dedicated to uplifting children living with chronic or life-threatening illnesses. Our campus includes our Medical Center and helipad, Equestrian Center, Bowling Alley, Indoor Swimming Complex, Gymnasium and Climbing Wall, Lodges, Dining Hall and Theater....and so much MORE. But it's the amazing children and their wonderful families who fill these 168 acres with the sounds of laughter, singing and silliness. Designed for the medically fragile child and his/her family members, they attend this magnificent state of the art facility at no cost to them. We are open ALL YEAR LONG and offer 2 distinct types of programs from 22 family weekend retreats where the entire family joins their child, to 9 separate weeks of illness specific summer camping sessions focused specifically on the ill child. For many of our children, this is their first time away from home except for hospital stays. Whether bowling or swimming, horseback riding or fishing, making new friends or singing 'round the campfire... at The Center for Courageous Kids "WE PRESCRIBE FUN". They welcome children living with chronic and life threatening illnesses from all across the country. To date, over 7,000 children and family members from 29 states and Canada have attended with nearly 60 separate and unique diagnoses.
