Camping the Night Away is CCC’s signature fundraising event. It offers a fun, camp-themed evening of drinks, delicious food, auctions, raffles and more! The proceeds from the night help make Camp Heart Connection programming possible, including Oncology, Sibling, Spring and Fall Family, Teen and Day Camps. These camps are all provided at no cost to CCC families thanks in part to these events. Recommended dress is business or cocktail attire. 

2023 Camping the Night Away Swisher will be held on Oct. 5.

2024 Camping the Night Away Des Moines will be held on May 10.
