Epilepsy Education and Group Support (E.E.G.S.)

Arkansas Children’s Hospital, Burn Unit, YAR/Camp Sunshine
Peyton held a Drama Therapy workshop for Camp Sunshine and Young Adults Retreat (YAR). The organization was founded in 1991 as an attempt to promote physical and emotional healing, as well as growth and development of burned children. It now provides both adult and pediatric survivors across the state of Arkansas with an opportunity to establish lasting friendships, experience personal growth, and develop lifelong memories. Camp Sunshine and YAR are provided free of charge to the camper, as all counselors and volunteers attend on a volunteer basis. Funding is totally provided by the Arkansas Professional Fire Fighters who conduct fundraisers throughout each year to raise the thousands of dollars needed.
