ABOUT CARE CAMPS
Care Camps is here to bring hope, healing and outright fun for kids with cancer and their families. Working together, Care Camps partners help raise funds for a compelling 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, Care Camps will continue to help these great kids make joyful memories of their own. Since 1984, Care Camps has raised over $14 million so kids and their siblings can attend camp free of charge. In 2018, $1.5 million in operating and capital grants was disbursed serving 42,000 children and family members. Healing happens here.
