Youth & Family Kidney Camps


Northwest Kidney Kids offers three Camp Programs - Summer Family Camp and Winter & Summer Youth Camps. The Kidney Camp experience provides a safe environment for children and families to gather for educational activities, parent and youth enrichment, emotional support, camaraderie, and networking. Participants receive support from professionals who understand these challenges, and children and parents offer meaningful support to one another and develop friendships that extend beyond Camp. Kidney Camp encourages campers to see life beyond their disease while addressing the emotional issues associated with kidney disease and empowering Kidney Kids to achieve lifelong success.

Suzanne Memorial Scholarship




,



Suzanne Billings was a pediatric social worker who dedicated much of her professional life to working with families of children with kidney disease. Suzanne was integral in the development of NW Kidney Kids and served as President of the Board from 2013 until her death in 2017. Suzanne radiated joy and pride in her kidney kids' accomplishments; she was a true champion for her families and is beloved and missed by all whose lives she enriched over the years.

In the spirit of Suzanne's life work, a scholarship has been established to promote independence and self-empowerment. The purpose of this scholarship is to assist in the development of skills and knowledge to facilitate life-long self-sufficiency for a "kidney kid". These funds can be used to support the higher education or technical training of a young adult with kidney disease.

The Suzanne Billings Memorial Scholarship will be awarded annually by NW Kidney Kids in keeping with its mission to encourage young people with kidney disease to realize their potential and embrace their future.

Scholarship application for 2019-2020 is due March 15, 2019. Fill out the Onilne Application. Download the full application directions and required Letter of Reference and Medical Verification here
