Campership Challenge

Campership Challenge is an easy online way to help support Children’s Cancer Connection’s many Camp Heart Connection programs. While all of CCC’s camp programs are offered at no cost to Iowa families, they DO take a significant budget to operate. Campership Challenge was created to allow individuals a chance to raise funds for these one-of-a-kind camps that mean so much to hundreds of campers each year.  

Camp programs include weeklong Oncology and Sibling Camps, weekend-long Family and Teen Camps, and two weeks of Day Camp each summer. Campership Challenge is for everyone – current and former campers, and volunteer staff members, as well as CCC parents, grandparents and family friends! YOU can make a difference, and there are fun incentives, too!
