Camp Heart Connection’s Teen Camp is a truly special experience offered to all teens served by CCC. CCC recognizes that our teens face unique medical and emotional challenges, and they build strength from being together during their journeys. Teen Camp allows teens who are on or off treatment as well as siblings to come together for a weekend of camp activities. They get to meet new friends and visit with existing ones.
CCC will provide transportation, with pick-up locations at the Children’s Cancer Connection office in Johnston and in Iowa City.
2023 Teen Camp:
Oct. 20-22, YMCA Camp Abe Lincoln in Blue Grass, IA
Teen Camp volunteers must be 21+.
