Camps for Kids
Camps for Kids is a Cook Children's program that offers patients and families the opportunity to experience the power of camp. Because our camps are operated by camp staff as well as hospital staff, we are able to create a medically safe camp environment, complete with many of your typical camp activities.
Cook Children’s conducts over 25 week-long summer camps and weekend retreat camps, each focusing on a different diagnosis or patient population. The goal is to create a sense of normalcy by providing experiences that help children learn skills and gain independence and have a strong emphasis on peer, parent and sibling support. But most importantly, we want campers to build supportive, lasting relationships with others who share similar life experiences.
This year, in order to keep patients and families safe, we have had to make changes to our Summer 2020 camps. The Camps for Kids team has transitioned many of our camps to virtual and will provide campers with a “camp in a box.” In addition to our virtual camps, other camps have been rescheduled for a later date.
With your support, Cook Children’s can continue to create long-lasting and special memories through virtual camp. Donate today to help bring this experience to our patient families, free of charge.
