Kidz Club—New This Year!

Kidz Club is designed to provide supervised entertainment for kids while parents attend educational sessions. Age-appropriate activities will be offered in the Playschool Room (infants to 8 years old), and Tween Room (9 to 14 years old). Morning and afternoon sessions will be provided. Kids must be registered online by June 14 to participate.

Tweens are welcome to “hang out,” enjoy video games, and chat with their peers in the Tween Room Monday and Tuesday morning, and Tuesday afternoon. Monday afternoon, there will be a Tween breakout session, where youth will come together with a moderator to discuss issues of importance to them, centering on things connected to HPEN. Limited supervision will be provided; parental permission is required.

Note that we cannot provide medical care; hook up, disconnect, or troubleshoot infusions or tube feeding; change ostomy bags; administer medications; and so on.
