No parent is prepared to learn their child has cancer. That’s why Children’s Cancer Connection is here to help you navigate the road ahead.

We provide opportunities to encourage relationships and strengthen community to over 600 families. Whatever twists and turns you encounter as you adjust to your new normal, you can always count on one thing: Children’s Cancer Connection is dedicated to supporting you the entire way.

Camp Heart Connection Oncology Camp

Oncology Camp provides children with cancer a week of typical camp activities and so much more. Campers are able to spend time with others who are going through the same emotions as they are. Returning campers who are off treatment provide hope to our new campers, and nobody has to worry about not fitting in due to scars or hair loss. Our staff is trained to be sensitive and supportive of all of the campers.
