Camp Courage An awesome day for awesome kids

“You should go because you know you’re not alone.”

Every year, Cancer Family Care organizes Camp Courage, a one-day camp experience for children between the ages of 5 to 14 who have been impacted by a cancer diagnosis in the family or by a loss due to cancer. Camp Courage is also open to childhood cancer survivors.

Campers are divided into groups according to age and participate in a variety of therapeutic activities throughout the day. Older children can also participate in a high ropes course experience.

Cancer Family Care’s main office provides transportation to and from Camp Joy.

Please contact Kaitlyn Grote at (513) 731-3346 with questions regarding registration.

June 1, 2024, 9:30 am – 3:00 pm

Camp Courage is staffed by camp counseling professionals and volunteers. All adults participating have undergone background checks for your child’s safety.

Depending on the severity of your child’s needs, we may or may not be able to serve your child. Parents/guardians are not permitted to accompany their child throughout the day.

“It’s a nice place to go to express your feelings about cancer.”

“It helps you understand cancer.”
