IDF Teen Escape
IDF Teen Escape weekends are designed to help teens (ages 11 – 18) develop coping skills, promote and nurture friendships and provide educational guidance for those living with primary immunodeficiency disease (PIDD).
In addition to an opportunity to network with other teens who have been diagnosed with a primary immunodeficiency, teens participate in fun activities and develop skills to help manage their disease.
With an ever-evolving, age-appropriate curriculum, medical and life skill experts present invaluable information for teens with PIDD. Everyone benefits from learned question and answer sessions.
While the teens are taking advantage of entertaining and educational activities, parents participate in sessions geared toward their own issues and concerns.
Parental sessions teach coping and PIDD management skills. They also offer priceless question and answer time with medical professionals, life skill professionals, IDF Teen & Young Adult Council members, and mentors.
Providing a program in which teen patients and their families can relax, learn, have fun, and connect in a setting away from the familiarity of day-to-day medical concerns is the motivation behind the IDF Teen Escape weekend.
