A Free Camp For Kids and Their Siblings Dealing With The Challenges of Cancer

Camp Courage is very pleased and excited to offer an in-person camp this summer! Camp Will look very different for 2021 as we are making it a family camp so as to allow families to camp together. There will not be any lodge access and the camp will take place 100% outdoors. Campsites will be designated for each family. For families that do not want to camp, they can attend as a day camp for one or both days. The dates for Camp Courage 2021 will be Saturday and Sunday June 12-13. More details will be coming!

Are you ready for the best camp ever??

Camp Courage is not a “cancer camp” where cancer is the focus; it’s a place where kids can be kids. Yes, they share this unfortunate disease, but that’s not what defines them, and it’s not what defines Camp Courage. We put cancer on the back burner, immersing kids in a week of outdoor adventures and fun. Activities include fishing in an on-site pond, a zip-line, the Big Swing, high ropes course, archery, horseback riding, boating, camp crafts, and hiking.
This is an incredible camp run by John Hite and volunteers who have hearts of gold. Many of the kids who attend don't get to be part of regular activities like "outdoor lab" in the public schools, due to their cancer. This week allows them to not miss out on being a KID for a few days! The bonds are priceless and the fact that a sibling is allowed to come along means that cancer parents get a much needed break!
