Summer camps can be an opportunity for children to experience new adventures in a supportive environment. For kids whose lives have been touched by cancer, the experience can be even more profound.
Camp Cedar Cliff, located in Asheville, is hosting its second annual Week of Joy camp, July 30-Aug. 3, with day camp options (rising kindergarten through fifth-graders) and overnight camp options (rising fourth-graders through 10th-graders.) The goal is to give kids who have been touched by cancer a week to have fun and experience joy.
The camp is free and is open to campers who meet the following criteria:
- Children (or siblings of children) who have had a cancer diagnosis who completed chemotherapy and/or radiation at least six months before the camp start date.
- Children who’ve had parent to die of cancer.
- Children who have a parent currently being treated for metastatic cancer.
