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. While many great organizations are working to find a cure for the disease afflicting more than 13,500 children each year in the United States, Children’s Cancer Connection strives to provide care following a cancer diagnosis. 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. 

Teen Lock-In

Children's Cancer Connection-2708 Grand Ave, Des Moines, IA 50312

***DUE TO CONCERN FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THIS TEEN LOCK-IN WILL BE LIMITED TO A MAXIMUM OF 10 CAMPERS. CCC PROCEDURES AND PRECAUTIONS MUST BE FOLLOWED WHEN ATTENDING***

This Teen Lock-In is in place of the originally planned Teen Camp scheduled for 2020 at the Des Moines Y-Camp. Due to concern for health and safety of our campers, we decided our best alternative option was to do two consecutive lock-ins at the Hansen Home for Hope. Campers can join us September 18th, 7pm - September 19th, 8am & September 19th, 7pm - September 20th, 8am. Campers will be asked to return home September 19th between the two lock-in sessions.

Teens ages 13-18 are invited to the lock-in at the Hansen Home for Hope. The fun will start at 7:00 pm and will include way too many snacks, games, and maybe some sleep. The fun will end on Saturday morning at 8:00am.
