Cancer Camps are intended to meet the needs of the whole family at each stage in the cancer journey—from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. Camp staff and volunteers are fully qualified and trained to meet the unique needs of young people affected by cancer. There are several summer camps for young people who have a parent with cancer listed below.

A cancer survivor who is looking for the adventure and thrill of a lifetime can hope to have a great time at a cancer camp. These camps offer sports like surfing, standup paddling, and kite boarding. The water-intense action sports are highly popular and offer a great sense of adventure. Food, accommodation and transportation are included in the camp.
