Camp CARE is committed to providing a normal childhood camping experience to children who have or have had cancer
Camp CARE is committed to providing a camp, and other year round activities for children, ages 3-16, who have or have had cancer, and their families in the Charlotte, NC area.
The philosophy of Camp CARE from the beginning has been that a child with cancer is, first of all, a child. A child, like all children, needs laughter, friends and fresh air. These are the very things Camp CARE can provide.
Camp CARE is a non-profit organization which relies entirely on volunteer support and donations.
Camp CARE hopes to:
- Recognize that a child with cancer is first of all a child, who like all children, needs laughter, friends, and fresh air
- Provide a summer camp experience, at no cost to the family, for children with cancer, supervised by a trained volunteer staff, including medical personnel
- Provide opportunities for families of children with cancer to interact and develop coping skills
- Increase awareness in the community of the needs of children with cancer
