Summer camping, University Hospital style

Camp Week

For lots of kids, summer camp is a much anticipated way to cram a lot of fun into a single week. Unless they’re in the hospital, of course.

But young patients at University Hospital got the chance to enjoy the summer camp experience, thanks to Jennifer Ibarra and her  team of Child Life specialists.

Throughout the week of July 27, pediatric patients got to enjoy lots of activities and special guest “camp counselors” from the Magik and Woodlawn theatres, the San Antonio Scorpions soccer team, former Spurs players — and even some U.S. Marines, who demontrated how to pitch a tent (and make s’mores).

Here’s some coverage from WOAI TV of the event.
