At Care Camps we believe healing
doesn’t just happen in hospitals.


Our mission

is to allow children living with cancer to enjoy the joy, healing and freedom that comes from attending specialized oncology camps where they can just be themselves. Through the camp experience, they can learn many of the skills necessary to meet the extraordinary challenges that they will face while fighting their disease.

You can make a difference
in the life of a child with cancer.


If you could make a difference in the life of a child with cancer, would you? Would you look for a way to bring them hope and help them heal? Would you find ways where they could feel “normal” again? At KOA Care Camps, we say “Yes.” And more importantly, we do something about it. We invite you to make a difference in the lives of these children. Please donate to KOA Care Camps today.

Healing Happens Here.
It starts with us.
It starts with you.


We support oncology camps
across the United States & Canada.

Because of you, KOA Care Camps continues to grow and currently supports 139 children’s oncology camps across North America. During 2019 we received more than $1.8 million in donations and have reached a new milestone of $16 million in total donations since our inception in the early 1980s. You can view our annual report here to find out how your donations are impacting children with cancer and their families.


Someday, cancer will be nothing more than a memory. Until that day, KOA Care Camps is here to bring hope, healing and outright fun for kids with cancer and their families. Working together, KOA owners, the KOA home office, our partners and KOA campers raise funds for a single cause: to send children affected by cancer to medically supervised camps where they have a wonderful time in the great outdoors with other kids who understand what they’re going through. They do it all while receiving the treatments they need. Until cancer is a memory, KOA Care Camps will continue to help these great kids make joyful memories of their own.


Through its charitable fundraising efforts, KOA Care Camps will provide necessary support to send kids with cancer to medically supervised cancer camps where they can have fun, build awesome friendships, feel the joy that comes from camping and spending time in nature, make memories that will help them heal and ultimately return home feeling renewed and filled with hope.
