Camp Diasozo is a unique camp
 working to enrich the lives
of children with morphea and scleroderma
and their families.

his camp, located in the beautiful hill country of Fredericksburg, Texas, offers a retreat-like environment for families of children with scleroderma and morphea and is available year-round. Currently, outdoor activities include a hayride to the hiking trails, a natural playground with a small zipline and a slack line, archery, art station, an outdoor movie theater, and a petting zoo consisting of Travis the horse, bunnnies chickens, ducks, two miniature donkeys named Mike & Sulley, and a sheet named Loretta Lamb. 

Camp Diasozo will eventually also host a six-day residential camp for children with scleroderma (ages 8-18), available each summer.  Every summer session will end with a country-western dance and Texas-style BBQ for the whole family.



How we began...
  

        
Shannon Hastings, known as Shannie to her friends and family, was diagnosed with scleroderma (morphea) in 2008 when she was only ten years old.  Her dream has been to start a camp for other kids who were also suffering from this autoimmune disease.  The name - Camp Diasozo - is taken from the ancient Greek word "diasozo" which means "to be made whole".

        Shannie and her family are fulfilling that dream through Camp Diasozo, where their hope is that other kids and their families can find healing, rest and friendship.
