Directions to the J.D. McCarty Center: Take I-35 to Norman. Take the Robinson Street exit and go east. Go east on Robinson through Norman to 12th Avenue NE. At that intersection, you'll find a 7-11 convenience store, a Conoco C-Store, the Griffin Memorial Hospital campus and City of Norman soccer and baseball fields. You're almost here. Continue east on Robinson for about 3/4 of a mile. Look for the hospital's sign on the right and turn into our main entrance.

The J. D. McCarty Center is Oklahoma’s center of excellence in the care and treatment of children with developmental disabilities from birth to age 21. This pediatric rehab hospital specializes in complicated cases of developmental disabilities, particularly those requiring intense therapy to help children reach their highest level of function and independence. Proceeds from the Norman Conquest will go to the Camp ClapHans summer camp scholarship endowment fund. Camp ClapHans is a summer camp project of the J. D. McCarty Center. This fund will help send kids to camp who might otherwise not be able to afford to go to camp.
