Mission Statement

The Mito Camp mission is to provide a camp for those affected by the devastating Mitochondrial Disease. Mito Camp is for children with Mito, their families as well as adults with Mito and their caretakers.

Description

Mito Camp is for children with Mito, their families as well as adults with Mito and their caretakers. For most of the campers this is the first time and possibly the only opportunity to experience those few joys that normal people enjoy. It is also the chance for those who have never talked to other Mito patients to share and learn how others are coping with this devastating genetic disease that has no cure. The camp is held at a special purpose camp in Burton Texas, a Section 501(c)(3) exempt organization. This barrier free facility was specifically built and is operated to cater to those with disabilities. There are no fees for a camper, caretaker, children and family members to attend the Mito Camp. All funds, whether income or principal, and whether acquired by gift or contribution or otherwise, will be used to provide the necessary fees and support to send individuals to camp.
