Each of the cancer camps supported by KOA Care Camps is designed specifically for children with cancer. On-site medical facilities staffed by professionals are ready to administer treatments as needed, while camp counselors have undergone special training focused on meeting the unique needs of cancer patients. In many cases, these camps are staffed almost entirely by volunteers to ensure that any funding they receive goes toward making the experience of every camper remarkable and full of joy.
