An Authentic Community of Support

Families who care for children with complex medical needs are especially vulnerable during these uncertain times. To help ease the sense of isolation and stress camper parents and caregivers are facing, we’re offering ongoing special content and supportive resources.

Delivered in new ways, these initiatives are intended to offer hope, improved well-being and meaningful connections with other parents and caregivers on a similar journey.

Creating Generous Spaces for Connection

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” – Researcher & author, Brené Brown

Despite the transition from offering on-site to virtual programming due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our goals—supporting our camper families with high-quality, cost-free, inclusive programs—are as vital as ever. Whether in person or online, our experienced team offers children with serious illnesses and their siblings, parents and caregivers the chance to connect in respectful and caring spaces.

Parent & Caregiver Support Groups

Led by a trained facilitator, these support groups meet every other week. Open to parents and caregivers of children with serious illnesses. Space is limited. Reserve a spot today.

Camper Meetup Groups

Virtual meetups give our campers, who are between the ages of 7 and 17, a chance to connect with peers in small online gathering spaces. Space is limited. Reserve a spot today.

Fun Family Game Nights

Each month, we offer a different online family-fun themed game, ideal for all ages. A chance for families to enjoy time together and meet other families. See schedule & register today.

Camp Clubs

Hosted virtually on the last Saturday of each month, campers and families can enjoy popular camp activities and adventures. See schedule & register today.

Special Live Events

A curated series of Live entertainment events for our camp friends. These free virtual events are also open to the public. See schedule & register today.

Family Camp 

These virtual weekend programs bring together families caring for children with serious health challenges to share in community building and memory-making fun. Registration for 2021 spring family camps coming soon.

A Healing Place

While we will be hosting our programs virtually this year, we will continue to offer intentional, community-building programs to our camper families, always free of charge. Listen to parents share their family camp experiences in the video below.
