The equation? Camp = normal.
Kids with cancer understand.
Fishing, swimming, painting, singing, dancing, pillow-fighting, laughing. A week at camp gives them back their place in life, a foothold, a time of knowing where they stand when so much is uncertain. For a week or weekend, these special campers make unforgettable memories with friends who are struggling with a cancer diagnosis, too.
“I tell first-time participants that camp is the closest thing they’ll find to heaven on earth,” Special Love’s camp director says. “It’s unconditional acceptance, optimism, and a sense of adventure unlike anything they’ll find anywhere else.”
Our free camps are held throughout the year at fully modernized facilities in the Greater Washington, D.C., area. Check out our programs for Patients & Survivors, Siblings, and Families.
