Amputee Camp Comes to Live Oak
Looking different can be tough for children growing up, but in North Central Florida this week, there was one place where no one stood out.
Camp No Limits is the only therapeutic camp in the country dedicated to kids with no limbs. This week, 13 kids, and their families, got the chance to relate to people just like them at the newest camp location in Live Oak Florida.
At the camp, kids can participate in a variety of activities that help strengthen specific muscles that they need to maneuver in their prosthetics. An exercise program focusing on core strengthening is just one of the activities the camp offers for the amputees.
Of course, there's the chance to make new friends who understand what it's like to live without a limb.
"They are used to being the only child that is missing that leg or arm and it's very awkward for them," Maja Kazazic said, who had a leg amputated at the age of 16.
