Pam Finlayson
Kids Camp Leader

Pam Finlayson has been involved in the hydrocephalus community for over 30 years, since her daughter Kate acquired the condition as a premature infant. During Kate's lifetime Pam became familiar with the wide-ranging challenges and struggles which face hydrocephalus patients and their families--from ever-changing medical, developmental, physical, and educational needs to the difficulty of finding appropriate information, treatment and support over the course of a patient's life. A former teacher, Pam enjoys volunteering her time as a mentor to high school students in underserved communities, working for the Red Cross, and teaching adaptive skiing to a diverse population of children and adults in New Hampshire. She could not be more excited to meet, learn with, and grow alongside the amazing children attending Kids Camp during our National Conference!


By signing your child up for Kids Camp, it allows the parent or guardian to attend the conference sessions and socialize with other adults while their child is having a wonderful experience with people who may become lifelong friends.

Kids Camp includes snacks and the Welcome Reception on Thursday, lunch, and snacks on Friday and Saturday, and the Dinner Dance and Talent Show on Saturday evening.

Stay tuned for the 2024 Kids Camp program!
