Betsy's Camp

CLOVES Family Camp is an annual opportunity that focuses on community, connection, relaxation and fun.

Beginning in 2020, CLOVES Family Camp will be renamed Betsy’s Camp, in memory of an exceptional woman, Betsy Lewis, who lived her life with CLOVES Syndrome.   Betsy’s presence, and the way she lived her life, made a huge impact on all of us in the CLOVES community.

Betsy was an elementary school teacher for 30 years.  Her work with children touched an incredible number of people.  Betsy and her husband Chris led an adventurous life and traveled the world, in spite of her physical challenges.  Her adventures continued when she became a mom to daughters Daisy and Rosie. 

By making time to play, create space for adventures and spend time together at Betsy’s Camp, we hope to honor Betsy’s life and her memory for many years to come.
