Making friends and finding support:
Children and teens with OCD often share that they feel alone in having OCD – that they know few, if any, other kids with OCD. Camp
Deecio seeks to normalize OCD for teens by providing an opportunity to get to know other teens with OCD and share in the
experience of facing OCD-related fears.
Having an adventure:
During Camp Deecio, kids have the opportunity to participate in a high ropes challenge course – a series of ladders, climbing walls,
cables, and poles all high up in the trees and built specifically for climbing on, go on a day hike in the North Cascade Mountains,
and camp-out overnight with other kids like themselves. Traditional camp experiences such as sitting around camp fires, sleeping
in the woods in tents or under tarps, scavenger hunts, eating delicious S’mores, and many types of games will be highlights of the
Staff who are specialists in treating OCD provide support and coaching throughout the weekend to help kids face some of their
OCD-related fears. The goal is to provide a therapeutic weekend that is both enjoyable and challenging and that will provide a
meaningful experience for participants. One of the unique features of the program is that participants will have the opportunity to
provide support and encouragement to one another as they all face OCD-related fears.
