Camp Leg Power was a Success!

September 10, 2018

6 campers

9 counselors

4 researchers

10 gallons of paint

1 ankle robot

15 pounds of sand

1 talent show

45 hours of camp

57 donors, including you!


These are just a handful of the components that made our 2018 Camp Leg Power a wonderful success!


Our campers, who ranged from ages seven to fourteen, attended fifteen sessions of intensive (and fun!) therapy focused on improving their leg strength, coordination and walking. Some therapies were focused on stimulating senses in the feet and legs, and included the use of paint, warm and cold water, and sand. Our therapists also focused on motor control by incorporating exercises that promote skilled movement in ankles, knees, and legs – one of the kids’ favorite activities was a video game they could control with their ankle. Since no summer camp would be complete without it, we also had a talent show. The children sang, did magic tricks, told jokes, played the guitar, and showed off their basketball skills.


We’ve received very positive feedback from both campers and parents. After camp, parents felt their children walked and performed activities with more confidence and endurance. The children loved the social aspect of the camp, as well as the exercise and games to improve their physical capacity.


Our next step is to delve into the research component of this project, and analyze the results of the pre- and post-camp evaluations of walking and brain MRIs. Through our analysis, we aim to identify changes in the brain in response to various therapies that can better inform future treatment options.


Camp Leg Power would not have been possible without your support. We are grateful for your commitment to providing an incredible summer experience to children with spastic diplegic CP.  On behalf of our happy campers, and the entire UCLA/OIC Center for Cerebral Palsy team, thank you for your generosity.
