WINTER THINGS! // Keep your eyes on this page as we will continue adding events.

1) Family Bowling at Strike City // Sunday, November 27th from 2-4 pm. We will have lanes and a private room rented. Cost is $4/person for shoe rental – please let us know if cost is a barrier so we can assist you. Registration is down below.

2) December Respite/Day Camp at Hilyard Community Center, Eugene. (This camp is specifically catered to children with complex disabilities.)

Drop off your kiddo and go get some Christmas shopping done while they enjoy time with friends! Sign up for any or all sessions and we’ll do our best to accommodate based on availability.

Monday, 12/19 (two sessions): 9:30-12:30 and 1:30-4:30

Tuesday, 12/20 (one session) 9-noon

Wednesday, 12/21 (two sessions): 9:30-12:30 and 1:30-4:30

Registration is limited to seven (7) children each session. Each session will have winter-themed activities that include a giftable project, cooking and sensory activities, group games, and snacks. Before a child attends camp, at the advice of our registered nurse, we will assess the need for an Individual Care Plan.



Thank you for your interest in Circle of Friends. Our team will contact you in the next few days to confirm your submission(s) and complete registration.

Before COVID, we had monthly meet-ups and activities for families, and we were preparing for our first camps. Clearly we couldn’t have the risk of hosting in-person camps for medically fragile children, even with taking all the necessary precautions. So in 2020 we had to innovate, and thus was born our first ever Sunshine-In-A-Box Camp. (Check out this video below.)

What we’ve learned is that even though COVID had momentarily changed the trajectory of our plans (check this out for more on those plans), being physically distanced did not mean that we had to be socially distanced, AND we definitely did not lack inclusion. We began working to keep families engaged and feeling valued even though the entire world felt upside down.

We were so fortunate to have two summer camp sessions in 2021, as well as multiple in-person events. This year we’ve had Spring Break Camp, a family dance party, three summer camp sessions, and a multitude of other meet-ups. We have a lot planned and look forward to seeing you around!

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
