Our Care Extends Beyond Our Walls
At Shriners Children's Twin Cities, our team is committed to caring for the overall health and well-being of our patients. This includes their minds as well as their bodies. In that spirit, we offer a wide variety of programs and camps.
Our extensive patient programs give children the opportunity to participate in enjoyable activities to brighten their appointments and in camps that can help them return to their communities more active and confident.
Shriners Children's partners with a number of community organizations to provide opportunities for children to explore and grow their overall potential inside and outside of the clinic. Email our child life staff or call at 612-718-2311 to learn about current opportunities.
