What we're all about...

Camp Hope has been in operation since 1986 and is a special place where kids with cancer can simply smile, laugh and play; a place where they are not treated as 'different' or 'sickî; a place where they can just be happy, fun loving kids. This week long camping experience helps meets the physical, psychological, and emotional needs of hundreds of young cancer patients and their families. Thanks to the financial contributions of the American Cancer Society's many friends and donors, participants will be able to attend Camp Hope free of charge. Children currently in treatment for cancer at age 7, as well as those who are up to 17 years post treatment are eligible to attend Camp Hope. Attendance is subject to the approval of the medical director. All Campers medical needs can be met while at camp by a full time Nurse Practitioner, RN's and a pediatric oncologist on call at all times.
