Camp Michitanki (Michigan Transplant Kids) is a summer camp created by the U-M Transplant Center in 2003 to provide an exciting camping experience for children 8-15 years of age who have had an organ transplant. Campers spend several days at camp each summer participating in a variety of activities and have the opportunity to develop life skills in a fun residential camp setting. Transplant nurses, physicians, social workers and other community volunteers work with professional camp staff to provide a "normal" and medically supervised camping experience. Children are divided by age and gender and assigned into cabin groups for the week. Camp Michitanki has been hosted at several camps through the years. In 2023, University of Michigan transplant recipient children ages 8-15 will have the opportunity to attend camp at Flying Horse Farms in Ohio in late June. More information is available from UM pediatric transplant nurses and will be distributed to patients and families in March and April.
