Camp Next Level

What is Camp Next Level?

Camp Cell-A-Bration Next Level or Camp Next Level is the premier transition camp for teens and young adults aged 15-19. Transitioning from pediatric to adult care often comes with a host of issues and concerns including inadequate patient education, lack of medical home placement, a lack of career or college preparedness and a sense of being tossed into an abyss. Research has found that the sickle cell disease transition population (specifically ages 16-25) are in critical need of transition services to have a successful and safe transition to adult care. Luckily, the Sickle Cell Association of Texas Marc Thomas Foundation has over 21 years experience in providing transition services. In addition to our transition services which includes medical referrals, medical home placement, career counseling, mental health counseling and others, we also have a specifically tailored transition camp called Camp Next Level. At this fun and intense educational boot camp teens will be prepared for transitioning as adults with sickle cell disease. Disease education and maintenance, medical referrals, communication techniques with health professionals, medical independence, pain management techniques including yoga, college preparation and educational tools will be provided for all those that attend. This is an event you do not want your teen to miss!
