For Parents

Special Days Camps exists to provide a safe and memorable camping opportunity in a medically supervised environment for children who have experienced cancer and their siblings, servicing the entire family. We offer activities of a traditional camp, adapted to meet the special needs of our campers.

Special Days Camps is the second-longest-running oncology camp in the world. Over the years our service to our families have grown.  Check out what cool programs we have to offer.

Our activities are intentionally designed to promote self-esteem, confidence, friendships, teamwork and leadership.  Campers are given the opportunity to challenge themselves and develop life skills as they move through our programs.  Developing these skills can help them successfully meet the challenges of treatment, school, work and family.

After attending Special Days, campers bring home more than just dirty laundry… they bring home unforgettable memories and long-lasting friendships. They bring home tales of tasks accomplished that before were thought of as unattainable. They come home feeling more confident in themselves and more secure with their illness. It is amazing how one week at Special Days Camps can truly make a difference in their lives!
