When a sister or brother is diagnosed with cancer, siblings’ lives are changed forever. Sometimes feeling guilty, invisible, or ignored, healthy siblings experience the same upheaval as their parents. But as children, they may have less capacity to cope.
Our BRASS (BRothers And SiSters) Camp offers activities like campfires, canoeing, and sports, along with camaraderie and peer empathy — an open dialog among campers and counselors to ensure siblings going through the cancer experience are enveloped in the same support system as their parents and their sick brothers or sisters.
BRASS Camp meets at Camp Maria in Leonardtown, MD, a traditional camp facility that sits on the beautiful Breton Bay.
